Poétika: Each moment has its verse - Jacobo Benareche & Jenaro Talens Fri, October 26, 2012 • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM • BEN 2.104 Jacobo Benareche will present the new poetry app, Poetika, produced with the collaboration of one of our invited poets, Jenaro Talens.

Poétika gives its users the chance to encounter fine poetry, linked to emotional states, locations, weather and time.

Each time you use Poétika, you will discover the "poem of the hour", retrieved from a vast universal poetry anthology, exclusively edited for this app by poets Jenaro Talens and Catherine Francois. Poems may be ranked, saved and shared.

But there's more to it than discovering which poems are meaningful and inspiring for each user. This app is also a powerful publishing tool that enables users to write and share their own poems, tagged and geolocated.
