'Slam hits you between the ears' by Dave Lordan

There is a thoughtful article by Dave Lordan in the latest issue of Socialist Worker about Ireland's growing poetry slam scene. A number of slam participants well known to Over The Edge audiences receive favourable mention.

Dave Lordan won the 2005 Patrick Kavanagh Award for Poetry. His first collection of poems, The Boy In The Ring, will be published by Salmon Poetry.
