Jeanette Winterson ON ART:

Art can make a difference because it pulls people up short. It says, don’t accept things for their face value; you don’t have to go along with any of this; you can think for yourself. It gives you a kind of self-reliance. We all feel powerless and we can’t really manage to do anything because there’s just so much. I want to try and cut through those feelings of apathy and powerlessness and be a kind of rallying point, offer a rallying cry, to people who would otherwise feel dispossessed.

Jeanette Winterson ON LANGUAGE:

For me, language is a freedom. As soon as you have found the words with which to express something, you are no longer incoherent, you are no longer trapped by your own emotions, by your own experiences; you can describe them, you can tell them, you can bring them out of yourself and give them to somebody else. That is an enormously liberating experience, and it worries me that more and more people are learning not to use language; they’re giving in to the banalities of the television media and shrinking their vocabulary, shrinking their own way of using this fabulous tool that human beings have refined over so many centuries into this extremely sensitive instrument. I don’t want to make it crude, I don’t want to make it into shopping-list language, I don’t want to make it into simply an exchange of information: I want to make it into the subtle, emotional, intellectual, freeing thing that it is and that it can be.

Calling all IUSB English Graduate Students:

Submit your creative writing to the Graduate Creative Writing Awards!

Deadline: THIS Thursday, March 10 at 11:59pm
Submit: Poetry (up to 5 poems) or Prose (Fiction or Creative Nonfiction up to 5000 words)
Email your submission to department secretary, McKenzie Tozan: mltozan@iusb.edu

Please include your name and genre in your email. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously and finalists will be judged by Michael Griffith, novelist and editor of the Cincinnati Review, who is our guest author for this year’s Student Writing Awards on Friday April 22.

We are holding this separate contest because Analecta is not publishing graduate student writing this year, and because our English Dept Student Writing Awards event draws on Analecta submissions – and because we want to celebrate the great work of our graduate students!

[This award is for current IUSB graduate students only.]
