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.

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 [ … ]

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.

This looks wonderful, Francesco. I’m not able to volunteer as a daily moderator…traveling too much right now during a year sabbatical, and soon to be without regular wifi when I go to the Mideast in February. But I hope Amy and possibly other will moderate, to help prevent spammers etc.
