To battle! With poetry! Following the epic debut of Hawke's Bay's first poetry slam last year, Motif Poetry returns to the festival with the format taking the world by storm. Poetry Slam is a competitive, high-energy poetry show known for being accessible and great fun.

From fast-paced rap to heart-breaking love poetry (or more puns than recommended) this show will change your opinions on what poetry can be. Host Sara Hirsch has been working in schools across the region in preparation for this event, running writing workshops and generating interest in poetry.

You'll see some of these young poets perform on the night. Three rounds of audience-judged, original work from established and emerging Hawke’s Bay performers, alongside some of the best NZ spoken word poets. The rawness of spoken word poetry, especially in the hands of writers new to the format is beautiful and authentic.
