writing + boxing = Left / Write // Hook – Lyon D, Gaskin C, Everall G (2022). TEXT 26 (Special 67): 1–18.

There are knowledges that are felt before they are thought: ‘poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought’ (Lorde, 1984, p.37). Boxing is a way to give form to that which has been overpowered by the abuse, to invite out of hiding what the abuse told us was not permitted. 

– From ‘writing + boxing = Left / Write // Hook’
