eJournal Of Innovative Poetry
The name PoeP! is inspired by Russian constructivist artist El Lissitsky who created paintings called prouns. Prouns integrate architecture with graphic design and are derived from the words PROaktivst UNkn, which means 'seeing the now in space.' POeP! similarly uses a hybrid of the words 'POem' and 'Ethernet Protocol.' It means seeing the now in space by combining poetry and technology. But it's also the sound of a poem being POPPED! into life.
POeP! is one of the first eBook literary journals dedicated to innovative poetry. Edwin Torres is the series editor and designer, each issue has a guest editor. Brian Kim Stefans is co-editor of the forthcoming Issue #2.
