VIRTUAL: ‘Specific Qualities that Cannot be Displayed on Paper’ — Digital Poetries Now

23 June 2021, 2:00 pm–3:30 pm

digital poetry

Digital poetry is a flexible and porous genre that operates at the intersection of text, sound, image and programmable content via web pages, blogs and apps – and this is only a very partial list. In this session, we'll explore current themes and movements within digital poetry in the UK and internationally. In particular, we will focus on form and digital poetries that use ‘the properties of the digital medium in a meaningfully distinct manner.
