I’ve never made it to one of the E-Poetry festivals, but I’ve heard great things from those who’ve attended. This is a bad travel year for me, but I’m very tempted…
London: Wednesday, 28 September – Saturday, 1 October 2005
E-Poetry 2005 is both a conference and festival, dedicated to showcasing the best talent in digital poetry and poetics from around the world. E-Poetry combines a high-level academic conference and workshop (examining growing trends in this young art form) with a festival of the latest and most exciting work from both established and new practitioners.
The festival is scheduled to take place at Birkbeck College, University of London, with performances at the ICA, Tate Modern, and other important London venues. There will be performances by numerous leading digital poets with guest appearances from major literary figures, as well as installations and exhibits throughout the week. The festival organizers are Loss Pequeño Glazier & Piers Hugill, with the assistance of John Cayley. http://epc.buffalo.edu/e-poetry/2005
