Workshop Arts Centre & North Shore Poetry Project’s poetry prize.

Escape another night of alternative facts on the TV and join a bunch of excellent local poets play with words and ideas in a way that has real meaning and art. In fact, bring your own poem, any style will do as long as it not more than 30 lines.

For the first time the Workshop Arts Centre and the North Shore Poetry Project will be combining to bring our excellent local poets together for some pizza, wine and verse and a competitive edge. Yes, the audience can vote for their favourite poem with the winner taking home a $100 prize.

The night will be hosted by local poet, raconteur, and actor, John Carey. So, bring along that poem you’ve been hiding from the world and see it gather some friends.

Cost: $15 per person, includes pizza. Limited places available.
