The Archive of the Now is an electronic and print collection of poetry and text-based work.It is offered as a scholarly, aesthetic, social and political resource for writers and readers of innovative poetry. Andrea Brady, its Director, has been commissioning and collecting audio performances by poets since early 2005, which now form the basis of this website.
