Guide to Further Reading
for the Experimental Literature Cook Off
Now that the cook off is complete, I thought I would share some links. If you want to know more about experimental literature, conceptual writing, Flarf, Fluxus, OULIPO and that sort of stuff, here is a quick and dirty list of things you might read. So that the list is user-friendly, I divided it according to whether the text as “creative” or “discussion”.
