The Office of Locutions is open.
Yesterday I found myself producing our first pamphlets, a project that relied on the goodwill of others for assistance with printing and folding. Not least the other residents at the Head Office, who endured a few hours of a paper-strewn lounge room as I stamped.
And then, last night, I took the first opportunity to distribute pamphlets to audience members at the monthly poetry reading at Sappho’s in Glebe. I envisage that I will be carting a bag of pamphlets around for the foreseeable future, pressing them into other peoples’ hands. Pressing them into other peoples’ hands, and asking if they would think about contributing. One cannot “locute” alone.
