Samantha Van Zweden, one of the up and coming stars of the poetry slam scene, recently included an interview with me in her blog: Little Girl With A Big Pen.
We talked about writing, performance poetry, the state of the scene in Melbourne, the upcoming NZ tour, and the 9 second poets' grace.
Might be a bit more Randall than you can handle, (or stomach) but hey if you're reading this anyway...
(What? Hey don't look at me like that, I didn't name the link).
Sam van Zweden is a writer, journalist, ranter, songstress, reader, student, critic.
She has boxes full of notebooks full of her chronologies. Desperate attempts to keep things in place, to catch time and put it away. That is not what this blog is.
“Little Girl With A Big Pen” is a way to share stories and poems, but also the things that inspire and excite. It’s that impulse to capture things again, only less indulgent.
Melbourne’s literature scene is alive and kicking, and this blog follows Sam’s stumbling around that labyrinthine dream.
Thanks again for your interest Sam!
