This is Derek Motion’s page – a reincarnation of typingspace, the old blogger blog. It’s been around since 2005.

typingspace is a space for typing. Usually poem drafts; sometimes other things.

I used to have ‘You can google me for more information’ here, but I’ve been made aware that some people find this annoying. Is it arrogant to stress one’s ‘googlebility’? Perhaps. If anything, the fact that my poems & other writing can be found online is due to the fact that my combination of first and last names is rather unique. There is one other Derek Motion out there (a painter-decorator residing in England by the looks of it) but I am taking some steps to blot out any traces of this individual. But you don’t want to know too much about that do you…  

Other things: I am PhD student at CSU; I work as Director of the Booranga Writers’ Centre.

    kelly – i have to add you to it. i can probably do it. the list is terribly out of date anyway. um, maybe tomorrow… or the next day…

    paul – yes. one’s library chair does tend to slant towards the horizontal axis more & more as the day progresses.

    Greetings, Derek,

    Would you mind dropping me an email via jskinner(at)bates(dot)edu? This may come as a surprise, but the ecopoetics issue that includes your poem “Learning About Explorers” is finally about to be printed, and I wanted to run a proof by you, plus get some additional information (short bio, mailing address). Thanks!

    Jonathan Skinner
