We know, we know, you can't have the 2021 National Poetry slam in 2022! But, we're breaking all the rules and doing it anyway.
The best Performance Poets that New Zealand has to offer converge on Christchurch for the New Zealand National Poetry Slam. Run since 2011 by NZ Poetry Slam, this year features performers from Lakes Region, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch for crowning the National champion. Who will win? Only judges chosen randomly from the audience can decide.
