deadpaper [ ded -pey-per ] /not to be capitalized/
- a semiannual electronic journal of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction.
- as originally defined in the inchoate incarnation of deadpaper that appeared from 2002 through 2005—a convergence, an epicenter, a nerve-center, an omphalos, a crossroads, a downtown of people wanting to write stories and lay verse —yet paradoxically, a decentralized network (of networks) of efforts that includes the electronic journal, regular readings in downtown Jacksonville, and poetic innovations among people who have something and/or someway to say.
- a deprived-of-life substance made from wood pulp, rags, straw, or other fibrous material, usually in thin sheets, used to bear writing or printing.
- in case it wasn't clear the first time, a deprived-of-life substance made from wood pulp, rags, straw, or other fibrous material, usually in thin sheets, used to bear writing or printing.
