E-POETRY, 2001: An International Digital Poetry Festival will be the first convocation of digital poets and artists to focus on the state of art of digital poetry. The festival will be held in Buffalo, New York, April 19-21, 2001, with special pre-festival events on the afternoon of April 18th. The festival will bring together practitioners who have never before appeared together in the same program. We expect participants from countries such as Brazil, the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Russia, Japan, and Australia, in addition to Canada and the U.S. The festival will focus on works in networked and programmable media, kinetic/visual works, hypertext, and multiple practices in digital media. This festival hopes to follow in the tradition of great New Poetry festivals of the past, providing a context for readings, conversations, and social interactions and a locus for the coming together in a non-hierarchical manner of the different views, practices, and theories that define this emerging field.

Featured poets will read, perform, and exhibit works that currently define the state of the art in digital poetries. An emphasis will be made on presenting internationally influential practitioners whose contributions have yet to be publicly recognized in the US. This will be the first presentation of such works in this range and depth in a single venue.

The festival will take place over three and a half days. Pre-festival events on the afternoon of the 18th will inaugurate the festival. Then, from the 19-21st, there will be three full days of morning and afternoon panels highlighted by featured readings in the afternoons and evenings. Panels and round table discussions will provide the opportunity for digital practitioners, scholars, and electronic editors/publishers to engage in conversations on crucial, controversial, and/or critical questions about these evolving forms.

Though digital poetry has been part of other digital conferences, "E-POETRY, 2001: An International Digital Poetry Festival" promises to be an historic literary event since it will be the first festival devoted exclusively to this emerging form of literary practice so crucial to the 21st century. We hope it will prove a landmark literary event as well as a coming of age event for current practice of digital poetry.

Please set aside these dates in your calendar and plan to join us in Buffalo for this event!

This location is across the street from the State University of New York at Buffalo's Amherst campus and it has the advantage of being in a small commercial zone loaded with a variety of hotels that are a 2 minute walk from the festival.
