Definitions…

In the introduction I linked to an article , written towards the end of 2013, which begins:

“It is a common misconception that digital media writing is about computers, networks, or any given technology.”

In her piece, Born Digital (2009), poet Stephanie Strickland presents eleven elements of electronic literature and begins:

 “E-poetry relies on code for its creation, preservation, and display: there is no way to experience a work of e-literature unless a computer is running it—reading it and perhaps also generating it. “

Her excellent article provides a perspective rich in ideas, and the polarity with Loss Pequeño Glazier’s piece creates plenty for consideration in the realm of the e-poet.
