Nau mai, haere mai. Welcome to the coolest little poetry slam in the capital (Sign-up details below) Motif Poetry is proud to present a friendly, inclusive space for poets to come together and share their work. The winners of each slam will go through to the Wellington Regional Final at the National Library of New Zealand in November. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SLAM POETRY. All poems and poets can take part in this fun format. The point is not the points, the points are just a bit of fun. 27 August 18:45 23 September 18:45 12 October 18:45 Koha entry - 14+ Share this event with your friends, bring your community. FOR PUNTERS: This isn't the poetry you learnt at school. It's alive. It's fun. It's relevant. FOR POETS: We'd love to hear your work. Give us an email to sign-up at kiaora@motifpoetry.co.nz - Only 8 spots to slam so get in quick! This is a 3 round slam, so please bring 3 poems just in case, all 3 minutes each or under. We like to keep things fair, and since our poets are given a random order before the start of the show, if you want to participate you have to be there before we start. No props, no costumes, no music, reading your poem from a paper or phone is fine and don't forget the cardinal rule, don't be a dick.
