Mixed Martial Arts by Steff Hui Ci Ling




In Mixed Martial Arts Steff Hui Ci Ling sets out to update the spirit of New Work Poetry as it was practiced by members of the Vancouver Industrial Writers Union. With former Union member Erín Moure as an interlocutor for this project, here Ling writes against the backdrop of multi-tasking, code-switching, neurotic professionalization, and the general spiritual beating that is taken while performing in today’s labour market. Mixed Martial Arts is a work poetry tuned for the decentralized, freelance and neoliberal conditions of contemporary labour in the Global North, and written to recuperate emotional texture and desire for political belonging. What Ling describes as her anti-work poems.
