WordHack is a monthly evening of performances and talks exploring the intersection of language and technology. Code poetry, digital literature, e-lit, devArt, coders interested in the creative side, writers interested in new forms writing can take, all are welcome here. We also have an OPEN PROJECTOR (like an open mic for digital work) where anyone can come up and show their work (for 5 minutes). Signup starts at 6:45, performers start at 7:15.
