Announcing: The Poetry Storehouse – collaboration, remix, multimedia poetry

Think of The Poetry Storehouse as a get-out-of-jail card for poems long locked up in dusty print journals, beyond the reach of links and search engines. As we say over at the site:

The Poetry Storehouse is an effort to promote new forms and delivery methods for page-poetry by creating a repository of freely-available high-quality contemporary poetry for those multimedia collaborative artists who may sometimes be stymied in their work by copyright and other restrictions.

Technology has not just connected people and poetry and poets and artists who weren’t connected to each other before, it has also changed both the face and the delivery of poetry itself. Poems locked up in hard-copy print editions only available for sale are struggling in new and serious ways, while poems delivered in multiple creative ways online have new leases on life and are reaching an ever-widening audience.

With thanks to Rachel Barenblat, Donna Vorreyer, Erica Goss, Jessica Piazza, Swoon and Dave Bonta for being part of the Storehouse team. Go on over and check it out!
