Overload Poetry Festival. Overland Literary Magazine lent us their blog for ten days and we quietly observed (and not so quietly commentated) Overload in all its delightfully poetic mayhem. Some of the results can be read here, here and here. For many spoken wordsters, Overland Overloaded was the first time they had the opportunity to have their sets reviewed.In September 2009, I assembled a team of six poetry reviewers to cover Australia's only Spoken Word Poetry Festival:
This year, Overload is coming to SlamUp.
From September 7, 2011, six reviewers will descend on Slam Up and blog-squat for ten days to bring you the best, and worst, of Overload 2011. We will be reviewing local spoken wordsters such as Steve Smart, Emilie Zoey Baker and Sean M Whelan in addition to visiting international heavyweights such as New York's Mahogany L. Browne and Jive Poetic and Canada's Shane Koyczan.
Hear it at Overload, then talk about it here.
