“As the capitalist mode of production extends, so also does the utilization
of the refuse left behind by production and consumption. Under the heading
of production we have the waste products of industry and agriculture, under
that of consumption we have both the excrement produced by man’s natural
metabolism and the form in which useful articles survive after use has been
made of them.” Marx, Capital, vol. 3

CREATIVITY AND UNCERTAINTY
Australian Association of Writing Programs

University of Technology, Sydney Australia

Writing is a kind of grappling with uncertainty. Writers write to find out
what they do and don’t think. Uncertainty is also inherent in the
challenges thrown up by the world in which we write, the challenge of
living in an increasingly complex, increasingly mediated society.
Uncertainty is also the process of writing itself. The journey into the
unknown. The shot in the dark. The way the work transforms itself in the
process of writing.
