I'm a US-based poet and I'm going to be coming to Australia for the first time ever from March 21-May 3, and staying in St Kilda, and I'm kind of trying to perform within that time.
I've toured nationally within the United States, and I've performed with Daphne Gottlieb, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, Shappy, Marty McConnell, and a lot of other people on the circuit. I've filmed for Def Poetry Jam and MTV's Rock The Vote, and my first novel, Never Mind the Goldbergs, was published last month on Scholastic Books. I've got a bunch of poems and mp3s on my website, www.matthue.com, and I can also send you stuff if you'd rather.
