All Tomorrow’s Poets at Time Out Bookshop on NZ Poetry Day is a must-go-to event in my view

This event looks terrific! I picked Manon as the winner when I judged The New Zealand Post Secondary School Competition a number of years back (I would so love to hear what she is doing now!) and shortlisted Kirsti for the Sarah Broom Poetry Award this year and and raved about Zarah’s book at her launch and here (and Steven’s). This is some line up. And I love the fact there are people here I have never heard of.

If I wasn’t doing a swag of things in Hamilton for Poetry Day I would be there with bells on. Anyone want to write about this event I will post it on Poetry Shelf. Cheers!

All Tomorrow’s Poets will be a unique and exciting event, showcasing cutting-edge New Zealand poetry and situating it in the context of Aotearoa New Zealand’s literary history.

MC’d by Gregory Kan and Steven Toussaint, the event will feature:

Ross Brighton
Kirsti Whalen
Craig Foltz
Isobel Cairns
Zarah Butcher McGunnigle
Jessica Hansell aka Coco Solid
Gregory Kan
Steven Toussaint
Alex Wild
Manon Revuelta

…reading their own work alongside a New Zealand poem which they have found inspirational.

All Tomorrow’s Poets will take place in the reading room, upstairs at Time Out Books, in an informal atmosphere with copious food and drink.

Come along from 6.30pm on August the 22nd to explore the expanding possibilities of poetry.

Location: Upstairs at Time Out Books, 432 Mt Eden Rd, Mt Eden, Auckland
