Peter Howard ...defined explicitly...

Peter Howard was born in Nottingham, educated at the Royal Grammar School, Worcester, and Hertford College, Oxford. He now lives in Haddenham, a village near Ely, UK, and works as a systems design consultant (whatever that means) for Hidalgo and a poet (whatever that means). He's written a booklet of poems called Low Probability of Racoons, another going by the title of Game Theory, and a collection Weighing the Air. He has had poems published in magazines, on the WWW, and read on television. On his site you can find some samples, and links to other interesting poetry-related sites.

For five years, Peter wrote an Internet poetry column for Poetry Review, and was a wizop on the CompuServe Poetry Forum. He has occasionally acted as guide for those wanting to find out about poetry and literature on the Internet.

He took part in the first trAce conference on Writers & the Internet held at the Broadway Media Centre, Nottingham, and in the Beyond Art? colloquium held in the Oxford Union Debating Chamber. You can now read the papers presented by some of the speakers at the colloquium. He has also given talks at two trAce Incubation symposia.

He was a tutor for the trAce Writing School, teaching Animated Poetry in Flash. He also taught courses on electronic literature for De Montford University.

Peter was a member of the performance group The Joy of Six.

You can read his very out of date Who's Who in Poetry entry, and an interview at the Poetry Kit site. Or you could take a look at his occasional soundpoetry blog at: Subatomic Poetry
