In Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing, Margaret Atwood claims:

All writers are double, for the simple reason that you can never actually meet the author of the book you have just read.  Too much time has elapsed between composition and publication, and the person who wrote the book is now a different person.  Or so goes the alibi.  (p 37)

I’m interested in the gap between thought and word, between truth and alibi, between moment and action.  As a writer and someone who works with writers, this is a space to investigate those gaps, and to delve deeper into the many other interstices and liminal spaces inhabited by words and their writers.
