Phases / Phrases

by Judith Copithorne

Judith Copithorne has been living and writing in Vancouver for decades. She has made many notable contributions to concrete poetry and other experimental writing through the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and into this 21st century. Judith is constantly changing the media in which she works as they become available, but at the core there is always her distinctive touch. Copithorne is as relevant now as she was back in the days of the downtown poets of Vancouver. She was published in the 1st issues of blew ointment and Ganglia and worked at Motion Studio and Intermedia. More recently a bibliography of her work was published by J.W. Curry in the March, 2009 issue of 1 cent.
