Pinging all electronic poets

Overland is again seeking digital-born poetry, electronic poetry, poetry in programmable media and codeworks: a poetry that isn’t merely published online but one that is informed, shaped or built by the culture and technology of the programmable machine and the network.

Overland’s sixtieth year coincides with other 60-year anniversaries, too: the untimely death of Alan Turing, the first Godzilla released in Japan, and the year Overland’s home suburb football team Footscray won an AFL Grand Final. Over that time, Overland has been Australia’s space to discuss and debate radical culture and politics. So this year, while all pieces will be considered and encouraged, those works that explore or critique radical culture and politics are especially sought.

For an idea of what electronic poetry is, or can be, read last year’s issue or a wide range of work is available on the Electronic Literature Collections v1 and v2.

Submissions close 30 September 2014 (for publication in October). The selection will be curated by Benjamin Laird, Overland’s website producer. Overland subscribers should submit their work in the form of a link. Work by non-subscribers will also be considered.
