Overload Poetry Festival 2011.This evening, Slam Up will start coverage of Melbourne's Annual
In the lead-up to the Overload opening night next Friday, we'll be meeting our reviewers. Writer, publisher and blogger extraordinaire Karen Andrews is back, along with poet and writer Koraly Dimitriadis, who vows she's open to bribes, but otherwise will perhaps be this year's most cutting critic.
You'll have to stay tuned to meet the other three brand new critics for Slam Up Overloaded, who will bring brand new eyes, ears and efforts to the Overload Poetry Festival 2011 coverage.
Over the next few days we'll shoot the breeze with festival founder Steve Smart, we'll review Sean M Whelan's latest book, we'll hold several blog slam competitions and we'll give away a coffee date with hip hop poet Saul Williams*...and that's just for starters.
Stay Tuned, while Slam Up gets Overloaded.
* Note: Slam Up's version of a 'coffee date' may differ markedly from the assumed meaning. But the prize will involve coffee, and some Saul.
