Volume 1 of the Journal of Interdimensional Poetry will be released at the Psychedemia Conference for Psychedelic Culture at the University of Pennsylvania in September 2012. The editors welcome submissions from interested writers. What is interdimensional poetry? It is many things, multidimensionally speaking, perhaps including: + a sense of humor. + attention to the power of ritual and performance. + a laboratory for new symbolic frames wherein personal and collective identities are consciously shaped and refashioned. + the way words mean many things at once and elsewise, forming constellations. + an alternative to postmodern irony. + investigations into consciousness and worlds beyond the measurable. + interest in a sustainable, aesthetically-inspired worldview. + creative exploration of potential–possible worlds, ways of knowing, states of being, forms of communication and communion–without a final resting point. + creative decisions as probes for further possibilities. What does interdimensional poetry mean to you?
