Writers and Poets who used NEOLOGISMS extensively

I’m on a quest to get a sense of  writers and poets who use neologisms extensively in their work.  I’m particularly interested in neologistic over pure sound poetry but I realize that the distinction is at best murky.  Joyce, Abraham Lincoln Gillespie & Eugene Jolas are obvious examples. Did Schwitters make other works besides Ursonate? [ … ]

new: ALL-PURPOSE VISPO, a book

ALL-PURPOSE VISPO by Nico Vassilakis

This book is exhibit catalogue or slick lit crit in the living room. Letters defy, detach and leave the word unstable. Visual language is not word alone, but reaches the untethered markings inside. Letters are free to roam and construe otherness. Letters are singular, words are a crowd. This book is one direction [ … ]

Code Poetics of “Wish4[0]“: 40 Days. 40 News Items. 40 Creative Responses.

Introduction: Wish4[0]

As extensive use of mobile devices such as smart phones, wearables and tablets has become the norm, it’s apparent how networked/online communication has become a crucial component of our everyday news and entertainment cycles, as well as a critical social tool. In the resultant infoglut we’ve willingly created [and to which we seem quite content to constantly expose ourselves], privacy concerns are prompting pushbacks against oversharing and the incessant rush of accelerating digital news. And yet, deliberate poetic responses to such critical social issues seem constantly overlooked and underutilised…

…which is where Wish4[0] comes in. Once a day, for 40 days, a digital literature work will be posted to wishforyouand.me. Each work will take as its immediate inspiration a headline, or item, drawn from the electronic news cycle of that specific day.
