Ora 18: Why I Write

Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin

29 January 2015

Taking the prompt from the title of Joan Didion’s 1976 essay, in ‘Why I Write’ Daniela Cascella and Salomé Voegelin discuss motivations, riddles and complexities of writing in relation to given modalities and formulas. Starting off with the recorded voice of Virginia Woolf, they read from texts by Gertrude Stein and Harry Mathews, listen to the digital poetry of AGF and discuss desire in the words of Ariana Reines.
