An exciting and diverse world of e-poetry is out there. Where is it? What makes poetry e-poetry? Do you have to be a programmer to make e-poetry? The answer to the later question is no.
An interest in poetry will more than do. Learn on e-poetry - and most of all, write your own e-poem in hands-on workshop. The poem you will write will change in time. Maybe just a word. Maybe all of the poem. It’s up to you. Surprise yourself :)
Its been a while (mid 1990s) and it was a lot of net art and e-poetry. It had something to do with the early days of Internet, and poetry and art. One of the pioneers of that moment will take you trough some special moments that still makes sense. Some art, some poetry, some intersection of it – all on-line. New for some, nostalgic for others. All welcome – as long as there is an interest in art, poetry and some Internet too. You might get bored otherwise. And to get bored is not the intention of the event. Don’t miss it.
