Forwarded in case someone feels inclined to present something on the role of disability and ableism in conversations around the below objects or other topics related to the CfP.

Best wishes,

Writing Objects:
The Pleasure of Pens, Desks, Books and Other Implements

While considerable scholarly attention has been paid to the figure of the writer, less has been given to the material objects with which the writer surrounds themselves in order to write. From Virginia Woolf’s claim that a woman must have ‘money and a room of her own’ (1929) if she is to write fiction, to Sara Ahmed’s phenomenological discussion of who can ‘arrive at the writing table’ (2006), the notion of a space in which to write – and the materials with which to write – have underpinned thinking about writing for the past century and more. These discussions have been particularly pertinent for those belonging to groups that have historically not had easy and sustained access to writing.

The pleasure of a particular pen and the need to take notes in a particular kind of book is well known. We invite submissions about the object(s) that give you pleasure when you write. How are we – as writers – positioned in relation towards those objects that we use to write with or which surround us when we write? How has the writing body been shaped by these objects and surroundings?

Contributions are invited which explore the pleasure of those objects which need to be just so before we can start writing: pens, desks, notebooks, fonts, mugs, pencils, margins, paper density and/or colour, keyboards, folders, rulers, screens, types of coffee/tea, et alia.

Contributions may take the form of a personal account of a relationship with an item, or may provide a short history of the item, or combine the both. Poetry (comic or otherwise) is welcome, as are any other forms that are appropriate to the task at hand.

This collection is intended to give pleasure for both the readers as well as the authors of the contributions, and should be written in an accessible and lively style. The contributions are not intended to be REF-able/tenure-driven: while REF and tenure are not, of course, always incompatible with giving pleasure, we want to think about moments of joy and pleasure in what we need around us when we start, continue and finish writing...

Muji, Moleskine, or Mont Blanc – what takes your fancy?


Deadline: 1 June 2018 (indications of interest by 1 March would be appreciated)
Length: Up to 3,000 words, but shorter contributions welcome
Editors: Stacy Gillis & Emma Short
