Subject: [E-POETRY] Announcing E-Poetry 2011 Buffalo -- Please Forward!

An Invitation to Attend E-Poetry 2011!

If you are interested in the emerging edge of language-informed arts
practice, whether as a poet, writer, artist, media innovator, scholar,
teacher, performer, or in any other disciplines, E-Poetry offers a context
for practice and analysis that can't be found anywhere else in the world.
For its tenth anniversary, E-Poetry has been brought back to Buffalo, a
central and accessible location for its activities. It will provide a mix of
practices, with the emphasis on emerging practices in multiple disciplines
that find themselves embedded or even just on the edge of the digital. It
will convene a celebratory (in the triumphant spirit of preceding historic
poetry festivals) and thought-filled gathering of 150 artists, writers, and
scholars from 40 countries -- a diversity and culturally rich offering that
won't be found elsewhere. Please attend:

International Digital Language | Arts Festival
May 18-21, 2011
University at Buffalo
Web registration now available! Specially-priced advance registration
offered during March 2011 only!

E-Poetry is the definitive innovative digital language arts festival in the
world. With its emphasis on poetics, performance, engaged arts,
experimentation, and scholarly and artistic conversation, and with previous
events in West Virginia, London, Paris, and Barcelona, it has defined
international digital literature poetics today.

The tenth anniversary festival of E-Poetry 2011 is set to launch a new epoch
in digital literature. E-Poetry, at its inception, was the first to map this
field. E-Poetry has been here since the beginning and continues even
stronger today. It has set out to organize the 2011 festival as a
culmination of the first ten years as well as a model for future years ?
advancing the conversation of the digital into the engaged scene of creative
and scholarly activity that the field promises.

With its sponsoring organization, the Electronic Poetry Center
(, often recognized as the world's first and
preeminent Web-based poetry resource, E-Poetry will define the arts as
emerging practice in an interdisciplinary, aesthetically complex, and
materially delightful manner never before seen. We invite you to be there.

The Festival will take place from Weds. May, 18th to Saturday May 21st,
2011, with special conference events on Tues, May 17 and its Wednesday
"Scientific Committee" panels. Please come for as long as you can. The cost
of visiting Buffalo is quite reasonable. We will be glad to help with
suggestions for your travel and accommodation. E-Poetry offers the chance
for a prolonged immersion into considerations of the workings and practices
of digital poets, scholars, and artists. Buffalo is a location, fervent with
the great powers of the Niagara rushing through the tranquil, flat, maple
forested countryside of Western New York, where we can come together, apart
from the hustle of a devouring city, to meet as artists and thinkers. It is
a location that offers celebration and contemplation. It is a quiet place
but a location within New York State's largest university, its programs
direct descendants of Black Mountain College, Language Poetry, various
iterations of the Poetics Program, Media Study at Buffalo, and the
Electronic Poetry Center. Buffalo is a prime leader in the U.S. in the
innovative digital, visual, sound, and language arts.
