    'For reasons at first best known only to mighty Fate, absence was a popular topic at the 21st annual Great Writing International Creative Writing Conference, held in London on 23–24 June 2018. Absence in the sense of non-presence (that is, not being there in the moment of writing). Absence in the sense of being disengaged (that is, being there but seemingly distracted from the task at hand). Absence in the sense of non-inclusion (that is, in terms of theme or subject the content of your creative writing lacking some element or another). Even absence in the sense of lacuna and redaction (that is, texts created where white space or blackened text suggested things removed).' (Graeme Harper, Editorial introduction)
