This past Monday, English 111 -- my Experimental Writing seminar (offered through Penn's Creative Writing Program) -- visited the ICA and the students performed their poems, written in response to the show, as well as to the 5oth anniversary ICA show on the second floor. Brooke Sietinsons was there taking pictures. The full set of photograph is on Flicker.

I started the Poetics List in late 1993, just after I came to Buffalo and co-founded the Poetics Program and a little while before the founding of the Electronic Poetry Center. When the list began, a email-based discussion group was a radically new format. There was no web interface and no way to filter messages. Emails were read and written via on-line ascii systems. During the first six years of the list, a deep and wide ranging discussion developed among the few hundred of us actively participating. I asked that the list address not be publicized so that we could keep the discussion to those with shared interests and that the list not become a general interest poetry forum. Much of the spirit of the early list was captured by Joel Kuszai, who edited Poetics@, for which I wrote the introduction. This ROOF book is available free in as epub, mobi, or pdf; or via Amazon.
