I think the first time I saw derek beaulieu's work was at phu online, but that was a while ago (probably doing a search on "concrete poetry" + "submission guidelines"), and I know I've chanced across other things since then. What caught me most recently was a couple of pieces that were posted at bentspoon. I saw those and thought, "I'd really like to see some more of his work." And thanks to the magic of modern technology, not only do I get to see some more, I get to spread it around, too.
