Event description
It’s all been building up to this. Wellington will come together once again to find their Poetry Slam Champion!

About this Event

Come prepared for a CASH ONLY bar and homemade treats.

It’s all been building up to this. Across the year, poetry groups Motif Poetry and Poetry in Motion Wellington have been running slams, now the winners will come together and battle it out to be Wellington’s 2019 Poetry Slam Champion.

Poetry Slam is the competitive format taking the world by storm. A high energy, enthralling event where performance poets are judged by random members of the audience in an arbitrary but totally engaging way.

Since 2011, many of Greater Wellington’s finest performance poets have competed and this year’s slams have been no different. Sold out events, packed open mics and searing hot verse screams out that poetry is alive and kicking in the capital.

There are cash prizes for the first three places, PLUS the winners will travel to Christchurch in November to compete for the title of New Zealand Slam Champ.

Be quick, this event always sells out!

-
