The JAFA Poetry Slam is BACK for our second qualifying slam of 2020! There is a short open mic open to all ages at the start, followed by an 18+ slam. The winners from this month will move into the Auckland Regional Final later this year.
Hadassah Grace is a writer and performer who's just moved to Auckland. She's been published in Vice, Nerve, Radio New Zealand, The Spinoff, and a lot of lovely queer literary journals.
Combining poetry, comedy, and storytelling she tries to use her penchant for poor life choices to write millennial fables about sex, politics, and sexual politics in a world on fire.
Her debut collection of poems, How to Take Off Your Clothes, was released last year through Dead Bird Books.
