Due to unforeseen circumstances, the WRYTING-L change-over will occur
on August 1, 2006. As of that date, WRYTING-L will be hosted at West
Virginia University. The current hosting at University of Toronto and
the current list address will no longer be available. We thank
University of Toronto for its support of the list. The current
subscriber list and archive are already transferred to the new host. The
aim and moderation of the list will be maintained unchanged. The list
moderator will continue to be Alan Sondheim, with additional management
by Sandy Baldwin.

The new list address will be WRYTING-L {AT} listserv.wvu.edu and all
postings must go to that address from August 1, 2006 onward. The online
archive address will be http://listserv.wvu.edu/archives/wryting-l.html.
Please update your booksmarks, address book, and so on. We will re-send
this announcement several times as a reminder to subscribers. We will
also circulate the revised description of WRYTING-L to other lists and
net venues.

open to anyone, in or outside the University.  The object is to provide
a forum for writing and theory that may not fit within the confines of a
particular discipline, in recognition of the recent interest in
operating between and across theories and genres in the humanities and

We're interested in all sorts of issues - 'avant-garde' pieces,
psychoanalytical, phenomenological, or deconstructive approaches, etc.

Wryting is cross-platform, cross-gender, cross-reason;  it may involve
embodiments of reader and writer, codework and sestinas, abstract
language, the collapse of genre.

If you are working with images, please give a URL; they won't come
through the list. If you are working on an extremely long piece, you
might want to give a URL as well (there is a 500-line limit on every

WRYTING-L stems from the older fiction-of-philosophy list, which
presented work between literature and theory, fiction and poetry,
philosophy and lyric, and so forth. Any discussion and original work is
