Catherine Wing received 2007 GAP Award funding to write as much as possible and in the process tease out the “murky relationship of syntax and tone, tone and gesture” in her poetry. She asks, “What part of a sentence’s syntax generates a specific tone? Can tone be shifted while maintaining syntax? If a sentence makes a gesture, if a sentence can be said to wink, what is it that is winking?” She quotes Herman Melville to thank Artist Trust for providing her with a bit more “Time, Strength, Cash and Patience!” to continue this work.
