The (deservedly) winning poem was “Harsh Light” by Elizabeth Brooke-Carr, and I was happy to be a finalist in this interesting new competition.
Please join us at Dog With Two Tails cafe at 8pm on 22 May 2019. Readings by feature poets Victor Billot and Richard Reeve, along with MC Ian Loughran.
And if you feel so inclined, please bring one poem of your own (or two very short ones) for our open mic segment!
Five poets take to the mic at The Savoy to read some of their latest work: Tayi Tibble (Poūkahangatus), David Eggleton (Edgeland and other poems), Liz Breslin (Alzheimer’s and a Spoon), Michael Harlow (The Moon in a Bowl of Water) and Majella Cullinane (Whisper of a Crow’s Wing). MC Victor Billot promises to keep them all in line. 9–10pm, Thursday 9 May 2019 at the Dunedin Writers and Readers Festival.
Rumour has it that I’m on at 9pm https://www.odt.co.nz/news/your-news/literary-bent-waitati-music-festival
