National Visual Poetry Month

Amanda Earl's AngelHousePress presents

NationalPoetryMonth.ca,
"a celebration of poetic form of all kinds and an homage to those poets who try to extend the definition of poetry. This year’s edition, which marks the fifth anniversary, is a tribute to the Last Vispo, an anthology of visual poetry edited by Nico Vassilakis and Crag Hill and published by Fantagraphics in 2012. The site contains visual poetry, asemic writing, collage, concrete poetry and other forms of whimsy by artists from Australia, Canada, the USA, Finland, Hungary, Italy, and Sweden. Each day in April a different visual poem will be shown. AngelHousePress thanks all who participated and sent work for consideration and wishes the month had at least forty five days in order to showcase all the great poetry we received."

Starting April 1, visit NationalPoetryMonth.ca for a different visual poem every day. So far this month there has been work by Gary Barwin, Michael Basinski & Ginny O’Brien, & Cecil Touchon dislayed. Another 27 artists are still to come.
