In December I curated the above. 17 visual / concrete poets agreed to share their work and brief discussions of their influences and methods.

Part 1 includes Jordan Abel, Gary Barwin, Derek Beaulieu, Michael e. Casteels, Judith Copithorne, Helen Hajnoczky and Donato Mancini.
Part 2 includes Billy Mavreas, kevin mcpherson eckhoff, gustave morin,michèle provost, a rawlings, Shane Rhodes, Eric Schmaltz, Chris Turnbull and Eric Zboya.


Singular Vispo

Nico Vassilakis invites visual poets to discuss a specific visual poem that captivated their imaginations. So far there have been five parts. It's a great opportunity to gain insight into visual poetry and to read about some spectacular vispoets. I talk about Mary Ellen Solt's "Flowers in Concrete" in Part 5.
