Overload Poetry Festival

Ok, this is way, way overdue. In the absence of a published program, clearly the 2012 Overload Poetry Festival is not happening in September 2012.

Festival director (and founder).. this is totally on my shoulders. I fucked up and didn't ask for help when help was needed (and offered). Turns out I have a bit of a kryptonite relationship with the whole thing, got to the point where mere mention of Overload left me gibbering and cowering in a corner. I'm happy to fall on the sword for this one.

But, all is not lost. I've spoken to former Director Luis Gonzalez Serrano and we propose to not cancel the festival and let it die in ignomy, but to postpone it while we get Overload organisationally back on track.

There are many phone calls, emails and meetings needed to get Overload working. The first thing we have to know is that the festival is still wanted and relevant to its base in the Melbourne poetry scene. It may be that the festival needs a full redesign.

To begin with there will be a short online survey being sent out (and to be passed out at gigs for those not online). We have ideas, but we want to hear your ideas. This is your festival and we need you involved.
