Very happy to announce that a poem I remixed has been chosen for inclusion in Issue 33.1 of Cordite Poetry Review!
A massive thanks to everyone in the issue, for obviously, without them I would have had nothing to work with. In fact, it’s interesting that I should claim authorship. Certainly I created the piece, but was I the author? (It’s an issue I want to take up in a mini article soon) I worked in a way that kept the original lines basically intact, I mostly reorganised them, altered some prepositions, maybe even tense, in order to have them fit better. (Which is pretty damn close to the ‘cut-up’ method favoured by the Beats)
Whether that constitutes writing the poem or editing it or something else is an interesting question, so it’s very exciting for me to be in the issue.
But other writers are much more creative when it comes to remixing than I, and took it further, have a look! The issue is packed with a range of remixes, both in style & content.
