|This year's theme: postcards.|
This year, adventuresome poets, we are exploring the TechnoVerse--that place in cyberspace where poetry and technology intersect.
To start us off, here is slam poet Kurt Ikeda's poem "iTeacher."
As a teacher, and the parent of two tech-culture immersed teens, I tip my hat to Kurt. "iTeacher" is an honest look at the pros and cons of teaching (and sometimes competing) with technology.
It takes an iVillage to seek out new forms and new iterations of poetry. We'll be looking at apps, programs, websites, and tools for writers. Here is a list of this month's guest bloggers.
