Poems that GO

poems that go

“What makes a poem a poem? If a text is sung, does it become a song? When motion graphics are involved, does that make it animation? If the images are photographic, is it cinema?”

Megan Sapnar and Ingrid Ankerson

The online journal “Poems That Go” launched in 2000 and effectively announced the arrival of Flash poetry into a budding electronic literature scene. Each of its five issues was an event, sending ripples of excitement and intellectual stimulus through electronic literature communities and beyond, attracting new writers and artists to the field. This is an ideal showcase of the aesthetic potential of Macromedia Flash before it was purchased by Adobe including conventions designed to accommodate the low bandwidth of 56k modems.
