An online journal for experimental writing and visuals, Word For/Word has emerged with snazzy new site design for its Winter 2020 issue, number 34. Big contributor’s list with many familiar names from across the international avant garde (see above). You can view the issue here.
It’s great to be part of this one with four visual poems I created by “sampling” newspapers with cellophane tape. My favorite of that whole batch is the one in the image above. My contributions can be viewed here.
X-Peri is an online blogozine for “high experimentalism,” which seems to mean really deep space language play judging by previous installments. I’m pleased to be part of it with the journal’s last post of the year, published yesterday, Dec 23. There are four poems written in “gonch” language, which means words composed from the letters of the phrase “all gonch”: “Chac Ghanagan Colhaggach Angacalla,” “Ocanongna,” “Anga Hagna Cagacna,” and “Nallanach Choc Hanol.” Plus one image from the Gonchlog made from letters drawn from some old issue of Rhapsody magazine. You can check it all out here.
Very excited to see the new issue of Utsanga released today–this one their 22nd issue. Lots of asemic and visual poetry here from across the international avant garde, including John Bennet, Texas Fontanella, Volodymyr Bilyk, Mark Young, and many more I should be more familiar with. I’m pleased to be included with five pieces of asemic vispo from a new series of work that seems very much like a journal from a far future human colony world on another planet. You can check it out here.
Online literary magazine The Pedestal just released its Issue 85 today, marking the journals 19th anniversary. This one features a selection of poetry and book reviews.
