Borgfest sponsoring Cyborg Poetry contest

In partnership with the Austin Poetry Society, we’re sponsoring a cyborg poetry contest that celebrates and supports those with prosthetics, orthotics, implants, transplants, augmentations, performance enhancements, body mod, quantified selves, or wearable tech.

We’d like dedication suggestions for a person, persons, or organization.

Ideas??!
