"texts that change the conscious parameters of literature, both for readers and writers. from a different angle, r.p. blackmur adds: 'poetry: ...language so twisted and posed in a form that...it adds to the stock of available reality.' this would apply to the works included here. previously published writing from white sky books will also be included. send texts to peter ganick at pganickz@gmail.com for consideration. both ex-ex-lit and white sky books are reading manuscripts."

Ou-Li-What? What American Writers Might Learn from the French » Fringe Magazine | Experimental literature | Scoop.it

"So what can American writers learn from the French? That we can be more proactive in thinking outside the box with regards to our compositional structures. If mathematics and literature can be combined, why not try other non-literary areas?"

"I’ve always said that my ideal reader would be someone who after finishing one of my novels would throw it out the window, presumably from an upper floor of an apartment building in New York, and by the time it had landed would be taking the elevator down to retrieve it." - H.M.

So we have our hip-hop samples here! Thanks! Who was first with cutting ;) ? Dj's or poets?
Dawid Bujno's comment, January 5, 2012 10:58 PM
Burroughs was prosaist and his most famous novel Naked Lunch where he used the cut-up technique was written in 1959, so a little earlier than the emergence of hip hop. Nonetheless that technique was inspired by what has happened in modern painting.
