Slam ô féminin's collective relationship to print, the spoken word, and marginalia

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This article looks at the relationship between print and spoken poetry in the writing philosophy and written contributions made by the slam poetry association Slam Ô Féminin's in its 2009 anthology. Part of Slam Ô Féminin's philosophy derives from making use of the miscellaneous tidbits of our everyday life and engaging with them in a process called marginalia. For this reason, the journalistic fait divers serves as a productive symbol of their writing philosophy. The engagement between textuality and orality provides a collective agency that counteracts a feeling of marginalization.
