What is Experimental Literature? {Recap: Five Questions Vol. 2}

Posted by @ 3:42 pm on July 13th, 2011

In case you missed any of them, below you’ll find links to each of the writers who participated in the second edition of my series of interviews aimed at expanding our understanding of experimental literature.  (Also if you missed it, here is a link to the list of writers who participated in the first edition.)

Again, my thanks to everybody for participating.  This has been a really insightful experience for me and hopefully for many of you.  In the near future, I plan to do a post that addresses some of what I’ve learned from the series and how it has helped me to rethink my ideas about this nebulous category of “experimental literature.”  At the moment, I’m unsure about a third edition.  Only time will tell.  But for now, I encourage you to visit or revisit the ocean of ideas presented by this impressive group of writers:

Brian Evenson

Dodie Bellamy

Eileen Myles

Evan Lavender-Smith

Johannes Göransson

Sesshu Foster

Dennis Cooper

Vi Khi Nao

Michael Martone
