Poetry, fiction & creative nonfiction
"The word poiesis stems from the Ancient Greek poïesis, or ποίησις, etymologically derived from the ancient term ποιέω, which literally means “to make.” Poiesis was first a verb meaning an action that transforms and continues the world. Neither technical production nor creation in the romantic sense, poietic work reconciles thought with matter and time, and person with the world. Pretentious sounding, yes? Oh, we thought so, too. Why else would we name our journal this?"
