PreCursor Poets Newsletter

The best words, in the best order, run through the best code—accounted for in your inbox.

From hyperlinks to algorithms to AI to networks and more, the possibilities for reading and writing have been expanding for decades, and artists have been making literature of these developments all along. Even long-standing traditions such as linear print fiction have been upended as revolutions in communications technology challenge the foundations of most popular narratives.

I completed my Ph.D. in English in 2019, and now run my scholarship independently through PreCursor Poets—one of the few public sources exploring these developments, and the only project actively committed to situating new writing in both the shorter history of digital literary experiments and the vast literary tradition.

Sign-up to continually discover new worlds of literature and to receive thoughtful longform insights into not only how new writing emerges in the digital age, but how these authors create through misreading their precursors.

You will also be notified of new reading groups, writing groups, live discussions, and other events. Join a community of readers and writers in learning about literature of the past, present, and yet to come.
