Hannah Weiner's Clairvoyant Journal 1974 was edited by Bat during the Go Words! residency (February–June 2014) on the occasion of the exhibition Breaking News from the Ether at La Panacée | Centre de culture contemporaine in Montpellier, France.
Clairvoyant Journal 1974 is based on the typescripts Early and Clairvoyant Journals and includes the entries dated February 23 to June 10. Hannah Weiner’s work is made available online on the Electronic Poetry Center of the University at Buffalo, www.epc.buffalo.edu.
On the occasion of this new edition of Clairvoyant Journal, Patrick Durgin expands on Hannah Weiner’s “clair-style” writing in “BIG SENSIBLE, Introductory Remarks on Clairvoyant Journal,” on www.f-u-t-u-r-e.org. The front cover photography is by Nelson Howe (circa 1975).
This series of still frames is taken from Public Access Poetry broadcast of December 29, 1977. Hannah Weiner (center) is reading the Clairvoyant Journal with Sharon Mattlin (right) and Peggy De Coursey (left).
