Virtual launch of “Verbs That Move Mountains”: Essays and Interviews on Spoken Word Cultures Around the World

We are proud to announce that Sabotage Reviews’ first publication will be launched virtually tomorrow. You can watch the roundtable discussions, which will take place at 11am, 6pm, and 10pm (UTC+0 time) here.

Throughout the day you will hear insightful discussions from Sophia Walker, Scherezade Siobhan, Rachel McCrum, Alice S. Yousef, Catherine Wilson, Sharon Moreham, and Martín Rangel.

Verbs that move mountains is a glimpse at the way poets, promoters and storytellers engage with spoken word around the world. The anthology includes histories of specific scenes, hard looks at how to make spoken word a more accessible and open space in terms of sexuality, mental health, indigenous languages and more…. Academic analysis co-exists with personal reflections. Current topics, such as the ethics of honesty in slam poetry, or the very real dangers faced by many poets around the world, are also discussed. These essays give you snapshots of scenes from Singapore to New Zealand, via Leicester and Palestine.

Please note, the paperback version of this book is no longer available, but you can download Verbs That Move Mountains as an eBook via the Amazon Kindle store for just £2.12.
