, and hyptertext and hypermedia works.
devoted to sharing "poetry across borders and oceans," it offers flash
treatments of poems, video conferencing hosting poetry events and RealAudio
presentations of live performances. Offered in conjunction with Telepoetics,
Electrolit Centre offers videophone conferencing to create interactive,
Internet, open mike sessions. The group meets annually at the Vancouver
Videopoem Festival. The videopeom sounds like a fascinating form but

The Electronic Literature Organization is a Chicago-based group committed to developing the potential of hypertext by offering support to electronic writers, similar to the support given to traditional writers by groups such as PEN and the National Book Foundation. In addition to scheduling hypertext readings, ELO supports electronic writers via chat rooms, writing symposiums, fund raising for electronic writing prizes, and e-publishing news.

The Corcoran Gallery of Art recently hosted a show entitled "Media / Metaphor." The show highligthed the ways new media is changing art.

It also features photographs of the installations.

Poems that Go
A visually stimulating site "created to unite words, design, music and motion and to celebrate poetry through technology and the Internet." Features animated, illustrated poems and links to additional illustrated poems on the Internet. As someone who knows the limitations of the technology and how time intensive these projects are, I am impressed with what these visual poets have achieved. Note: Many of the poetry pieces and the short stories require Shockwave and Flash 4.
