Ask and ye shall receive...more bp Nichol

More bp Nichol on the U Penn site:

bp Nichol Audio Archive, ed. Lori Emerson

This is great news. But someone, please, create a similar site dedicated to Canadian poets and poetics. Is there funding out there for this? It would go a long way to making this, and new experimental work, more visible and accessible in and outside of Canada. But it could also be a site that houses readings and performances across the board--where are our sound files?? Aside from a few on UBU and Philly, and now the files that the Griffin Site is adding, there is relatively little out there. Where are files of Dionne Brand, Tim Lilburn, Chris Dewdney, Christian Bok--all the great readers we have and no resource?! How can that be?

I want to use this as a teaching tool. Create please. CBC? Anyone?
