Please join us as a semester of experimentation with procedural text culminates in a one-night-only performance of computer-generated poetry. Seventeen students at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program will take the stage and, with their voices, set aloft poems and prose produced by programs of their own design. You are likely to encounter: poems made from pixels, automated propaganda, lexicographical cut-ups, twitter bots, and more.

Reading and Writing Electronic Text is a course offered at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. (http://itp.nyu.edu/itp/). The course is an introduction to both the Python programming language and contemporary techniques in electronic literature.
