Short biography: 

Tom Konyves was one of the seven Vehicule Poets in Montreal in 1977. He put poetry on the buses (Poesie En Mouvement), wrote a monthly column for The Montreal Star (Poetry Corn-er), initiated a collaborative poem and its performance (Drummer Boy Raga: Red Light Green Light), and produced a series of 26 TV programs about the avant-garde of Montreal (Art Montreal); he also produced his first videopoems, a term he coined to describe his blending of poetry and video into an “inextricable union”. Meanwhile, the voice of his first book of poems (No Parking) blended its way into a parodic narrative, a veritable surrealist novella he called OOSOOM (pronounced as the letters not the word) published by BookThug.
