The Poetry Project


Irene Silt & Syd Staiti

In the writing of Irene Silt and Syd Staiti, time doesn’t make sense, like poems don’t make money, like being a person with a body in the world doesn’t make a set and static self. This begs the question, what else is there we can make? How does anyone make anything? Staiti offers, “​​The body / of work holds its previous versions inside — invisible and present — building its aura out of them”

Featuring a guest introduction by Nora Treatbaby.
