T.S. Eliot wrote that “April is the “cruelest month,” but it is also National Poetry Month, and ELO wants to celebrate and showcase electronic poetry around the world. Join us!
- Plan a local electronic poetry event: a reading, an exhibit, a lecture for your school, library, gallery, neighborhood, etc..
- Share the details with us– leonardo.flores [at] upr.edu – and we will compile and publicize your individual effort as part of a nationwide network at www.eliterature.org/
To start things off, here are 4 events already scheduled:
