It is time for Spoken Word SA to officially welcome to the fold its talented new co-director! Ashlee Karlar is a queer, feminist poet from Adelaide. A lover of odes and metaphors, Ashlee is a social worker who believes that art and writing is an underused tool in trauma informed practice. She is a past SA finalist for the Australian Poetry Slam, a former poet in residence, and a regular at open mics around the city.
