volume 15, number 1, spring 2010

The Journal edition is dedicated to writing in interpretation.

Writing is sorcery. Make a few squiggly marks on a piece of paper – like the ones you’re reading now – and you conjure images and ideas in your reader’s mind. The magic trick works because the squiggly marks represent sounds, and the sounds are words, and the words are linked to things, actions, thoughts and feelings. It’s amazing the system works at all; that our brains are capable of skimming the marks so quickly while making the abstract connections between them, the sounds they represent, and the shapes and dreams for which the sounds are just symbols.
