Description

Landfall 207 explores stutters, creative mistakes, and slips of the tongue. Local and international writers and artists look at what happens when language starts to misbehave in strange and compelling ways. Nick Ascroft is our guide inside the world of competitive Scrabble. Tim Corballis wonders about stuttering. Peter Wells considers the politics of reviewing and the weight of words. Poets Emma Neale and Tze Ming Mok write about the poetic noises made by children and the sometimes childlike translations made by adults. The walls talk in a major portfolio by internationally renowned word artist Kay Rosen. And writers including Annamarie Jagose, Anna Livesey and Sara Knox point us toward their favourite signs.
