  • The Craft of Editing
    • Abstract: How do editors learn to edit' It’s a question I think about a lot. And it includes an assumption I fear is threatened in these lean times, as publishers lay off staff and streamline processes: editing is a craft. A big part of our work at Ecotone is to help carry forward the many varieties of that craft, from copy-editing to fact checking to substantive line editing to developmental editing to acquisition. Traditionally editors have learned to edit via apprenticeships at magazines and publishing houses. But how many of those beginning editorial positions are available now, especially to would-be editors who don’t want to, or can’t afford to, move to New York' I was lucky to have several kinds of ...

  • Letter to an Apprentice
    • Abstract: I am writing to you at the beginning of something. As one who has been through many beginnings, some more successful than others, I can confirm something you may be starting to suspect: there is nothing harder than beginning. The problems that come later, the loss of energy and direction, the potential for bitterness, the sense of time running out and time already squandered, are very real problems, but I believe they pale next to what you are feeling now. Beginning is a time with no maps, where meaning and shapes shift, and habits—those dear, reliable, necessary things—have not yet hardened, and the smallest questions—How much caffeine to drink' What kind of chair to use' What hours of day to work'—have not ...

  • The Lineman
    • Abstract: i am a lineman for the county. It’s true, and there was a time when Pam laughed when I said that, but now she just smirks and turns away; now she monitors the time I spend with Amanda and counts the days until the divorce comes through. Whenever I pick Amanda up for dinner, a wave of teenage cologne and strange hair colors in the cab of my truck, there’s yet another pasteboard box or torn grocery bag Pam has left on the steps with some of my belongings—old shaving cream, T-shirts, junk mail. She says she can’t bear to see me. We once had an old retriever mix named Teeny who, when caught spread-eagle on the living room sofa, stared into the far corner as if we couldn’t see her plump ...

  • Movements
    • Abstract: The first lesson asks me to hold the cello well. To prop its top against my ribs beneath my breast and atop my breath. Knees I’ve scraped since I learned to walk should not knock or pinch or scrape against the cello’s hips. Instead the knees should steady the cello like two hands on your shoulders at graduation, two hands that have touched more than you have. My teacher says I will feel the ghost of the scroll—that tidal wave where strings tighten and get right, pull of the ocean at peak—at the nape of my neck. Like your mother brushing fine hairs escaping your ponytail. I am to practice holding the cello well without my arms. I am to extend my arms and wave them as if I am treading generous ... Read More

  • How Does a Smokestack Mean'
    • Abstract: In the fall of 1972, I was a new graduate student, at a university ten times the size of my undergraduate school, in an unfamiliar city far from my old home in the suburbs of Washington, D. C. I was also newly married. I was excited about these changes, if a little nervous about so much change at once. I cannot remember thinking I am disoriented or I need to find my bearings. But as I learned my way around in those first days, I found myself attending closely to physical landmarks. In that part of Southeast Minneapolis, the student housing district thinned and bled into an old industrial area. A railroad yard hugged its edge; the Purina logo marked a group of low-slung, boxy buildings. Especially ... Read More

  • The Craft of Making Time: Field Reports From a Circadian Self-Test
    • Abstract: Established in 2008, Impractical Labor in Service of the Speculative Arts (ILSSA) is an evolving participatory art and publishing project committed to process and reflection. ILSSA is a membership organization that fosters community, and an imprint that publishes new ideas, tools, and resources. As a union, ILSSA focuses on improving the immaterial working conditions of our members. We long for an alternative to our culture’s obsession with efficiency and its automatic monetization of value, both of which are implicit in the old adage, “Time is money.” As ILSSA members, in our work and our lives, we prioritize process over product, and we aim to prize the quality of time spent rather ...

    • Abstract: My mom’s mother, my Oma, knitted, crocheted, embroidered, and sewed skillfully. In the years I knew her, she spent evenings watching television news programs with my Opa, always working a project in her hands and lap. My mom never learned to knit, but she crocheted and embroidered well, and sewed with even greater precision than her own mother. I learned to sew in middle school home ec. The telephone-shaped pillow and stuffed toy schnauzer I made in that class are among a handful of sewing projects I’ve seen through to finish. I learned the basic knit and purl stitches from my Oma, but my completed knitting projects consist of only two scarves. Crocheting, I never tried. ... Read More

  • Natural Disasters
    • Abstract: we were living in oklahoma ironically. Obviously it is not possible to live in a place ironically, but we were twenty-four and freshly married, so it was not obvious to us. It would not become obvious to me for a very long time; by then, by now, this clarity would be pointless, the thinly exhilarating aha! of a riddle solved at a cocktail party. Three months before we relocated to the Sooner State, Steven had come home from work with the news that he’d been offered a promotion and a significant raise for a position in his company’s Oklahoma City office. He shared this information tentatively. He was always tentative with me, always eager for my approval and watchful for the barbs of my ... Read More

  • Textual Portraits
    • Abstract: In the series Textual Portraits, I am interested in visualizing the historical context of women’s lives and conveying a sense of social heritage. This work starts with an image of a contemporary woman, often a scholar, artist, or student, who has made an impression on me. I select a classic social text that has relevance for the woman’s life. With image and text prepared, I begin typing on a manual typewriter. I have a small collection of typewriters, but my studio workhorse is an Underwood with an extended carriage, named Gwen after the British painter Gwen John. The titles of these works reference my source materials. For example, Lois (Woolf 1929) is a portrait of artist Lois Dodd created with ... Read More

  • Monsoon and Peacock
    • Abstract: What monsoon can do is give you sweetness in spite of the heavy wet. Even when it rains in Kerala, India, people still ride their colorful scooters, and some even carry a friend or a love along with them. If it is a woman behind the driver, she will sit sidesaddle, wrapped in her sari or churidar. One hand grips only the padded rim of the seat for support, the other holds a black umbrella covering herself and the driver. The thwap-thwap-thwap of raindrops the size of quarters and the scooter’s engine—the only sounds worth noticing on their damp course through the village streets. This rain is never scary, though, even during monsoon. You can tell monsoon is near when you hear a sound like someone ... Read More

  • The Hornpipe and the Rake
    • Abstract: On no morning is the face of my partner of thirty years the same, if I make the effort to really look. To note how a raw music of present circ umstances—outside the skin, within—casts novel echoes of shade or illumination over nooks and arcs of what, at the quickest glance, appear to be known features. For instance, today, in September 2017: before Anna, the poet, scurried out the door to her part-time day job in the financial-aid office of a local university, I perceived a silvery sheen of apples and their leafy stems, sailing from a wide expression of joy—an aftermath of our picking expedition yesterday to a farm-place outside Hard-wick, Minnesota. She had never done it before. I had never done it before. ... Read More

  • Foreigners
    • Abstract: PLEASE HAVE TWO SEATS since there are two of you. Now we are nicely arranged. I’m sorry we have to be divided like this, me on this side of the plastic partition and you on the other side. This is supposed to protect me from harm, even though they took away your bags and ran scanners down your persons the moment you were allowed to enter the unremarkable premises of the American Consulate. Admit it—it’s better in here than the disorderly mess of Karachi outside. It makes me miss the green, dust-free land of my birth: Riverdale, U. S. A. I hope you didn’t take that personally. Kindly put your passports, bank statements, visa applications, photos, birth certificates, marriage ... Read More

  • On Craft: Twenty-five Sentences from Ecotone Contributors
    • Abstract: As we planned and dreamed about this issue of Ecotone, we wanted to include work that explores craft of many kinds, work that makes us think about the act of making in new ways. We talked about craft shaped by place, and about place shaped by craft; about craft as a means of resilience and resistance, of cultural and bodily and ecological survival. We wanted to hear, in turn, what hopes and concerns about craft, writerly and / or otherwise, the writers and artists who are part of the issue might have. So we asked them. The only constraint we gave was that they fit their thoughts into a single sentence. The sentence, we noted, could be quite short or could extend, the way some do, to include a lot. In reply, we ...
