What do you all think of contributing to a Haptic-style newspaper? I volunteer to be the editor/publisher and will distribute to all Haptic Poetry members here at IUOMA. Any suggestions for a title? WWSD? (what would Schwitters do?)
Great idea for the collective Haptic newspaper! Our pages/sections of pages can still has somewhat haptic textures, etc and when combined should be amazing! I have started working on a few ideas. Limit: one newspaper page per person? Or can I send several things and Bifidus, as editor, you can choose what best fits-in and where?
I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and I agree--our combined Haptic work will be amazing. Since there are potentially 28 contributors, a page per person would result in too much bulk for Keith, I think. Perhaps 3 or 4 people to a page. As "editor" I'll do my best to include everything. Ernie has come up with wonderful titles for the newspaper. Keep the title ideas coming, then we can vote on one later.
To add to that last bit, I want to say too, that unless you instruct me otherwise, your contributions will probably be spread throughout the newspaper and not located all on one page. As you can see, I'm shooting from the hip with this project.
