15 February 2013 Writing Audio Overland II: Resistance Editorial team Audio submissions of spoken word poetry are sought for the second edition of Audio Overland, to be published in April 2013. Submissions must be under ten minutes in length, relate broadly to the theme ‘resistance’, and be sent as an audio file via the Overland online submission system by midnight, Friday 1 April 2013. No more than three pieces by each poet will be considered for publication. Poets whose work is accepted may be asked to submit a YouTube clip of their poem within seven days of acceptance for consideration for inclusion in the publication. Submissions are open to poets across the world, but for funding reasons we are only able to pay Australian citizens and permanent residents for their contributions. Audio Overland will be edited by Maxine Beneba Clarke. Listen to the first edition of Audio Overland.

If anything needed some exposure, it was the working conditions of freelancers.
