Literarily floored

October 29, 2008 at 11:36 am (Doing, Reading)

I went to a poetry reading on the Southbank on Monday night. Man, did I feel out of my depth! I used to be a literary powerhouse, up to my ears in unknown authors, literary theory, discussion groups, and events and loving it, but since I got into publishing, well, I think my brain has turned to mush. Contemporary fiction coloured mush. I want literature back!

So, here’s my plan – stop reading free books from work just because they’re there. Simple, really. I’m also going to join the Poetry Library, which is lovely. I will be literary again by 2009!

    And yet, you always strike me as very literary.

    I am well pleased you are reading Loorie Moore (who graduated from the same school I went to!). I am even more pleased that she’s doing another novel.
