Notebook Record Keeping in the Diaspora

Share this page:
MATATU invites you and your (new or old) notebook(s) to a writer’s salon where attendees from a range of origins and backgrounds exchange documentation ideas, languages, and practices.

“The mistaken assumption is that a writer’s notebook is a diary. Certainly, there are writers who, indeed, keep diaries, but a writer’s notebook is so much more.

My notebook is a collection of reflections, speculations, confessions, descriptions, quotations, impressions, and meditations. It’s fragments of words, sentences, paragraphs as well as entire essays. It contains ideas and drafts of poems and the novel that I am currently writing. Thus, it is one of the most valuable things I own and I don’t go anywhere without it.
