A collection of experimental texts by participants of a five-week experimental writing course at Camden Art Centre during November-December 2022 led by writer, Fiona Glen.
How can a text speak? What are weight, texture, tone, flow, shape, direction, and resonance in writing? And how can written language – seemingly static, two-dimensional and disembodied – relate to movement, physicality and embodiment?
Hum, murmur, mutter explored experimention with secrecy and performance, concealment and revelation – soaring fabulation, whispered confessions and urgent declarations. Testing out many voices and connecting with embodied modes of writing, the aim of the course was to surprise attendees: to write into the unknown, so that they could encounter their writing from a new angle.
The course culminated in a publication of a zine, Hum, Murmur, Mutter.
