This creative work was originally published as:

Lounsbury, L. (2015, November). Haunted: Claws and teeth. Creative performance presented at the Australian Association of Writing Programs Conference, Hawthorn, Australia.


A piece that explores both the concept of haunting as a textual provocateur but also the interaction between the theme and the live performance space – haunting “voiced” as much as “written”.

Writers were invited to submit via invitation, but submissions were selected by the Conference creative performance curator. This piece was selected under the sub-genre of “haunted place” and performed in an urban underground space that allowed the writer (as performer) to connect voice with text and space.
