Home & Away 2010 soon – a trans-Tasman poetry symposium

The New Zealand Electronic Poetry Centre (NZEPC) is presenting Home & Away 2010, a two-part symposium of readings, launches and forum-style talks. From the website:

HOME & AWAY 2010 is a trans Tasman poetry symposium dedicated to generating work and conversation face to face and in the global/digital neighbourhood. We want to talk about (and produce more) literary connections between Australia, New Zealand and the world of 21st century poetry.

The first part of the symposium took place at the University of Auckland in March. The second part will take place at the University of Technology, Sydney this September:

During the March event we will also establish a digital bridge and invite poets and others to start from one end with a contribution (text, images, audio or video)… Further contributions to the bridge will be uploaded as the symposium convenes… In this way we hope to create two-way traffic between points in time and places where people meet.

Home & Away 2010 convenes at the University of Technology, Sydney September 1-2.
