Short description: 

From the organization´s website:
The EPC was founed in 1995 and serves as a central gateway to resources in electronic poetry and poetics at the University at Buffalo, the University of Pennsylvania's PennSound PennSound, UBU web, and on the Web at large. Our aim is simple: to make available a wide range of resources centered on digital and contemporary formally innovative poetries, new media writing, and literary programming.
The EPC itself makes extensive resources available through its E-Poetry and Author libraries. These libraries provide curated lists of resources on a focused range of authors for personal use, research, and teaching. Additionally, the EPC curates lists of links to similar digital and literary projects, related book publishers, literary magazines, and other resources. The EPC has been favorably reviewed in The Chronicle of Higher Education and The Times Literary Supplement, among other publications, for its breadth of vision, number of resources, and focus on innovative media poetics in the digital age. It was also the sponsor of the first-ever digital poetry festival, E-Poetry 2001, held in Buffalo in April, 2001.
In addition to the vast number of works the it makes available, the EPC offers the innovation of providing a curated collection of primary literary texts. Accordingly, texts housed at the Electronic Poetry Center are "definitive" texts as each has been approved by its producers.
