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.
