Solid Air: Australian and New Zealand Spoken Word


I have a poem in this forthcoming anthology from University of Queensland Press.

Solid Air: Australian and New Zealand Spoken Word, the title is in all caps on the cover, which is a good thing, this is what UQP have to say about it, “Over the past decade, Spoken Word has established itself as a central part of contemporary Australian & New Zealand poetry. For the first-time ever, these voices are transported from the stage to the page, captured in print so that the spoken-word experience can be shared with a new and broader audience. Solid Air showcases the work of more than 100 performance poets - combining elements of slam, hip-hop and experimental performance poetry - to deliver an unforgettable reading experience that is both literary and loud.”

You can pre-order from the publisher as well as see some of the other names of people who have had work included, the editors are the previous Queensland Poetry Festival Directors, David Stavanger and Anne-Marie Te Whiu.
