Stephanie Strickland’s E-Poetry Manifesto (Jeni Rinner)

Stephanie Strickland attempts to elaborate on the principles underlying the new “e-poetics” she and others create in this article titled “Born Digital” from The Poetry Foundation.  As e-poetry is “made” as much as it is “written,” she suggests, it requires a different kind of reading that calls on principles of play.  I found this to be an excellent primer and summary of other work that’s being done in this emerging field.

Also, for those who might be interested in writing about these kinds of works, the E-Poetry Festival (held in Barcelona in May 2009) has an open call for paper abstracts.  Keynote speakers so far are N. Katherine Hayles, Roberto Simanowski and Jean Clément.  Take a look at the websites from the previous four festivals for more information as well.

    Thank you for these links both to the Strickland “primer,” as it were, and to the e-Poetry conference CFP. Both are incredibly useful for Monday’s seminar.
