What’s digital poetry? It’s where lines and stanzas transform into layered voices in multidimensional spaces. We will interlace words in a filigree of forms using simple digital tools for creating sound, image and language. You will need a  phone, tablet or laptop, and a willingness to go beyond the page! Maya Chowdhry is a poet, digital artist and transmedia writer.
