"The State of the Contemporary American (Actually North American English-Speaking) Visual Poetry Scene"

via Bob Grumman's po-X-cetera:

I would add to this that visual poets have been poor marketeers of their work. Very few real artists are not poor marketeers of their work. But, being more creative than the most prominent language poets, say, they could not (generally) conform sufficiently to gain influential university positions, or waste time exhibitionistically furthering themselves commercially a la Allen Ginsberg.
