Masterclass at J. M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice, Adelaide – ‘Wholly Other’: Writing and the Writer-critic
23 February 2017 at 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
In this masterclass, Elleke Boehmer will examine how we conceptualise the relationship between writing and criticism in the works of writers who practice both. Are metaphors such as conversation, exchange or interface at all helpful? In times when more creative writers than ever before are working in academic departments of literature, but at the same time writers and critics are distancing themselves from the notion of ‘critique’, has this relationship become closer or simply more ambiguous? And is the ambiguity in any way stimulating for the core work that makes us writers?
