VisPo Supplement 2
Welcome to the Vispo Supplement, a venue of visual poetry, or vispo (an umbrella term to mean intentional marking, text manipulation, visualized language, new alphabet, letter composition, etc.), seeking to present examples of the burgeoning wave of imagetext poetics. It attempts to readdress the conflicts and concerns of the past while showcasing the future of poetic forms. The supplement is international in scope and designed to give new vispoets a platform to exhibit work alongside more seasoned poets.
This is our second installment, and it will be rolled out one poet per week over the next seven weeks. Thanks for visiting!

She makes books (commercially printed, hand-made and recycled) and limited edition prints – with forays into actual ink and paper.
