spring academy of the vienna poetry school: "without net"

without net - "i finally want to know all about suffering!"

class with poet and publisher daniela seel (berlin)

the participating poets will take a possibly painful trip with daniela seel into uncertain territory. the quote for the class is the start of a poem by christine lavant: "ich will vom leiden endlich alles wissen! / zerschlag den glassturz der ergebenheit", as daniela seel explains and she continues to offer an agenda for the class: to radically turn to what hurts, to enter into one's own vulnerability and to come back with nothing but a poem. the pandemic with its specific weight has caused a special kind of sensitivity which will be looked at closer during the class, and it will be tried to treat it within a poem, during writing, reading, in conversation.
