Poemocracy Loves Sara Brickman!


My friend and poetry soldiergrrl Sara Brickman is among the 20 finalists for a book deal with Write Bloody Press. I don't know if you heard this, but Write Bloody is pretty much only interested in stage/slam poets, people who perform their asses off and tour. It's almost like a record label rather than a press.

This year, part of the selection process for the 4-8 lucky slambots who will get book deals involves posting a YouTube video of a performance and seeing how many people "like" it.

Sara is magnificent. Whether she gets the book deal or not won't change that, although this is her third year as a finalist and come on, Write Bloody, give her a f#cking book deal already.

Here's her YouTube video. If you like it, consider "liking" it. The amount of "likes" she gets has definite sway in the decision-making process.

And seriously, Write Bloody. Give her a f#cking book deal already. Or do you need her to win ANOTHER slam championship before you make up your mind?
