AN INTERNATIONAL AVANT WRITING SYMPOSIUM

In Memoriam Thomas L. Taylor

This August 19-21 the new OSU Thompson Library will be invaded by an
exciting horde of writers, scholars, artists, and others for the 2nd
Avant Writing Symposium. There will be some 50 presentations,
performances, papers, readings, installations, exhibits, and other
events, and an untold number of observers, fans, scholars, and
kibitzers. Sponsored by The Avant Writing Collection and the Rare
Books & MSS Library, with additional support from The Department of
Spanish & Portuguese and The Center for Latin American Studies, the
attendees and presenters will come from all over the United States,
Latin America, and elsewhere. All with a focus on various of the
Avant Gardes active in the world today, primarily those using
language in some form or other. Events will take place in the
Thompson Library, at OSU’s Urban Arts Space, and at Skylab in
downtown Columbus. In addition to the presentations and
performances, there will be exhibits in the Thompson Library, and at
Skylab, and a room dedicated to continual presentations of electronic
and digital poetry and literature.

The previous Symposium, in 2002, was a huge success, and is still
being talked about. So if you want to learn about literary
innovation and experimentation, avant garde writing, electronic and
digital literature, multi-lingualism, visual poetry, performance
poetry, Fluxus poetry and texts, collaborative writing, sound poetry,
international networking, artist´s books, cut-up text, concrete
poetry, found poetry, mail art, video poetry, and much much more,
this is your opportunity.
