Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Thursday 19th July 2012
One of the most vital and energetic movements in poetry during the 1990s, ‘Slam’ has revitalized spoken word performance among a new generation of poets the world over.
Now it's Nelson’s turn. Poetry Slam will feature 10 local entrants, with special guests including comedian Penny Ashton and Daniel Allan. It will be hosted by Mark Raffills – himself a finalist in NZ’s inaugural Poetry Slam last year.
Poets will perform original work before an audience whose response gives the judges their cue – looking as much at the manner and enthusiasm of its performance as its 7.30pm content or style.
