New Zealand Poetry Slam presents the NZ National Poetry Slam Finals!

Who will be the next champion? You decide! The top poets from across Aotearoa will battle it out in Hamilton on Saturday November 4th for the chance to be crowned New Zealand National Slam Champion with nothing but their words, passion and a microphone.

Poets representing Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Tauranga, Whakatane, Christchurch, Southern Lakes and Dunedin will have three rounds to read their own original work and win over the audience. With judges selected from the audience, the power is with the people to pick their own champion. The winner will receive literary and cash prizes, as well as a year’s worth of bragging rights.

Established in 2011, New Zealand Poetry Slam hosts the annual National Slam Finals to bring together poets and audiences in a hilarious and moving literary battle for all ages.

Doors open at 7pm.
This event is all ages and uncensored.
