Banned Poetry Uncensored!

Thursday 16th November 2017

Danger! Poetry must be banned! Golden Bay Live Poets Society celebrates banned poetry uncensored.

From children's poetry like Shel Silverstein's 'A Light In The Attic' to the works of Shakespeare, for as long as there have been writers, there have been texts that have been challenged, censored, burned, and banned.

Bring your (un)censored poems to read and win a Banned Poet badge!

Kevin Moran, author of Alchemical Psalms and banned poet from letters to the editor, will MC the evening.

Noah Jones will open the evening with his all-original folky soundscapes all the way from New Mexico.

Everyone is welcome to attend or participate. To reserve a slot, email Rose at

Thanks to Creative Communities for their support.
