writing is about space!

Why did it take me until graduate school to figure this out. It seems so obvious now, that writing and reading is a spatial experience, that we move through texts.

One Response to writing is about space!

  1. Sara Jameson says:

    Not only is writing about mental space, but physical space (and I hope the physical continues – so as to be materially grounded?) Texts have weight and bodily presence (even online) as well as intellectual weight and emotional baggage. We carry books, we write in books (at least I do, which is why I resist doing all my research online, and print out endless drafts). In writing in books, we are carrying on an actual conversation with the author, that is recorded in time and space on the margins – hmm – reader as marginalized?
