The Poetics List 2.0 seeks to continue the conversation started at the Buffalo Poetics List (1993–2014) and to provide an open space for the discussion of experimental, conceptual, and hybrid poetic aesthetics. Please feel free to post discussions, events/readings, calls for work, book/journal releases, announcements, opportunities, etc.; all posts get reposted to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and emailed as daily digests.

When it was announced that the Buffalo Poetics List was shutting down, list members responded with understanding, thanks for the years of engaged discussion, and a desire for the list to continue in a new form. After some discussion about what this new form might be, I decided to try and incorporate the various ideas presented into the new Poetics List 2.0 at the Chicago School of Poetics. This is just a beginning and if it proves useful to the community I’ll continue to host it and work towards improving it. If you have any suggestions for future upgrades, please post those to the “Suggestions” forum.
