Jessica Alice hosts Spoken Word on 3CR 855AM community radio and is the Poetry Editor for Voiceworks magazine. She is currently writing her Honours thesis on the work of contemporary American poet Johanna Drucker. Jessica was Assistant Editor of Divan – Australia’s first online poetry journal – in 2007. She has performed her poetry for the Emerging Writers and Overload Poetry Festivals – making her debut at the Abottsford Convent in 2008 and winning The Spinning Room’s performers place in 2010. She has recently enjoyed recurring features at ‘Tell It Like It Is’ at the Footscray Community Arts Centre, and was commissioned to write a modern poetic interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood for the Cost of Horror collective’s exhibition ‘Kinderspiel’ at The Owl and the Pussycat. Jessica is a regular contributor of literary news and highbrow gossip on Triple R’s Aural Text, and performs her poems wherever there is a bar and not necessarily a mic.
