HOW2New Writing Virginia Woolf

Introductory Remarks about this section:
Poems in their exploratory, innovative and hybrid nature are of particular interest, as well as blurred genre forms that include visual, narrative and dramatic elements of fiction and dialogue. Each contribution in this section includes a "Working Note" briefly describing the writing process of the project attempted. A revolving guest editor will invite contributions and select from proposals for the issue she edits. Guest editor for this issue is Eléna Rivera (see bio below). Guest editor for H2/n3 will be Kim Lyons <>
