Poem Brut celebrates artistic creative writing and its relationship with neurobiology – embracing text and colour, space and time, handwriting, composition, abstraction, illustration, sound, mess and motion. It affirms the possibilities of the page, the pen, the process and the performance in a computer age and celebrates genuine authentic originality in poetry, without overt recourse to biographical context and identity, resisting a literature of control, neatness, poise and direct, didactic meaning.
