Overland dispatches

Here’s my pick of interesting bits and pieces from around the interwebs, from guerilla poetry and ‘book-trafficking’ to the story of African punk, and other things you may have missed.

Blogger zunguzungu puts together a sometimes overwhelming list of some of the most interesting things around the web every Sunday. A recent highlight is the review of the doco Punk in Africa, and accompanying mixtape.

+972 Magazine remembers Wislawa Szymborska, whose poetry on war remains hauntingly relevant to our times.

There is a Marie Colvin tribute at Mother Jones by fellow journalist, Kurt Pitzer. You can also read her final piece for the Sunday Times.

Elsewhere, a Scottish artist takes poetry to the streets, an underground library movement forms in the South of the United States, and the wonderful Maya Angelou gives advice to her 15-year-old self.

Finally, In These Times recommends the top ten political films from last year.

Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
