Short description: 

In a series of events between 2004-2007, MACHINE showcased the literary uses of the computer. Poets, fiction writers, and others have been combining the networked and computational capabilities of digital machines with the workings of literature to produce new sorts of writing that exists online and on-screen: writing that plays on the context of the Internet, requires interaction and input from the reader, and brings many different media together in new ways. MACHINE, was a series co-sponsored by the Electronic Literature Organization in which writers of electronic literature came to the Kelly Writers House to read from and demonstrate their work, and to discuss the literary uses of the computer with area writers and members of the Penn community.

Members of the MACHINE Team: Charles Bernstein, Jim Carpenter, Cecilia Corrigan, Steve McLaughlin, Nick Montfort, and Catherine Turcich-Kealey.
