redactor uses found texts from the everyday – emails, memos, notes, lyrics, text messages, tweets, webfeeds – as poetic material. Drawing on techniques from the visual arts and radical writing such as the ready-made, the cut-up and the concrete poem, Eddie Paterson reflects upon the ways in which the historical legacy of censorship intersects with contemporary surveillance technologies.

If you’re in or near Melbourne, we hope you can come along and help celebrate Eddie’s book – a timely one following the inauguration of a Twitter-obsessed US president.
