Moving into Media

A poem, these days, isn’t always enough.  Now, we can be asked to submit our work with audio files, images, video files, who knows what?  While exploring these options may be fun, there are some who say that this is no longer poetry, but multimedia.  On the pro side, the oral tradition existed far longer than the print tradition, so why not audio? On the con side, it’s not the same experience, so it is more multimedia than poetry?  What do you think?

Pro or Con?  Let me know.
