Featherston Booktown Karukatea Festival 2022
Late Nite Lit: Poetry Unbound
Saturday 11 June 2022, 10:00 PM – LATE, Property Brokers Sports Hub. $15
(Nibbles provided and cash bar available)
The English poet, Shelley, claimed that “poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world”.
Curated by Poetry Slam Champion and acclaimed writer Jordan Hamel, a range of top poetry talent will rule the planet from 10:00 PM til late.
At the end of the night, we can make a call on whether Aotearoa New Zealand needs a parliament of poets to make us a better country!
Bring your own poems and have your chance to contribute to the parliament of poets – Rebecca Hawkes, Glenn Colquhoun, Jenny Bornholdt, Tracey Slaughter, Gregory O’Brien, Jordan Hamel, with MC/Speaker, Rose Northey - the speaker will call for poems from the floor.
Please note: due to unforseen circumstances, Gregory O'Brien and Jenny Bornholdt have had to pull out of this session as was earlier advertised.
