resources for experimental writing
The Electronic Poetry Center is an important
site for information on postwar experimental
poetry from the 'States. Perhaps the oldest poetry web online, the
EPC is maintained by Loss Glazier with the assistance of volunteers
from UB's Poetics Program.
Kenny Goldsmith's UBUWEB is an invaluable
resource for alternative poetries, as well as a site of ongoing
experimentation with new electronic distribution media. To know
it is to live it.
Directed by Steve McCaffery, The North American Centre for Interdisciplinary
Poetics is a web-based forum for experimental interdisciplinary
work art and writing.

SPORADICALLY-PUBLISHED "MAGAZINE" OF POETRY AND POETICS
Christopher W. Alexander and Linda Russo, eds.
Last Updated: 15 April 2005
Vertical green shape in the lower left corner
below a small pale blue one turned on its side,
the grey-striped cat disappearing across bricks
to the left of the green front door. Boy coming
into the room in the man in green shirt's dream
wanting to touch his face and hair. The woman
at the end of the table whose face was lifted
away from cheek bones, the red-haired reader
speaking of how much transparency is moving
above the shallow. Italian man travelling
overland from Kazakistan to Rome coming to see
that Communists have made a mess of everything,
a woman wanting to adjust her child's attitude
with a wrench. Dark surface of the rain cloud
above polished grey green plane of approaching
swell, small grey and white birds skimming
across from the left.
Curve of a small dark green stone on the white
quartz block behind lighter green of rose leaf
on the right, daylight coming into the sky
between windswept cloud and the still dark
ridge. The small dark brown bird slamming
against window glass of green french door,
landing on corner of bricks between lemon tree
in a pot and a piece of black plastic. Eleven
year old boy writing a paper about his stuffed
bear, then kicking it from the carpet in front
of the fireplace into the hall. Blond-haired
woman wanting the man in a red jacket to see
photo of actual albino crow, woman on phone
leaping toward man who won't open his arms.
Surface of weathered wood in relation to circle
of metal strings on pair of small striped rocks,
thin triangular piece of tin below it.
Two small circles of light at apex of triangular
shadowed wall, a pair of windows through which
greens of tobacco plant leaves and the light
blue of sky arrives. Reader in blue shirt
reading words about shape of words in air,
white-haired man next to drinks on table
saying Buddha's sermon became the world.
Relation of a to e sounds in Herrick's "brave
vibration each way free" demonstrating meaning,
relation of eyes seeing to mind thinking to pen.
Downturned curve of the waning moon in pale blue
sky above water's bluer surface, man in grey car
rounding hairpin turn on the left. Woman in red
jacket yelling Fidel to black and white pit bull
disappearing around the corner of a fence, white
undersides of gull's wings flapping below grey
white clouds in otherwise blue sky.
