  • Free Admission

An evening of poetry with readings from five of New Zealand’s finest poets.
Friday, 22 August 2014. 6.30 pm
Free event for National Poetry Day
at the Gus Fisher Gallery, 74 Shortland Street, Auckland.

National Poetry Day is a New Zealand-wide celebration of poetry and runs in conjunction with the New Zealand Post Book Awards.

In 2014 Divine Muses brings together some of New Zealand’s finest poets for this it’s 11th evening reading of poetry on National Poetry.

Chris Tse, Bob Orr, Riemke Ensing, Peter Bland, Siobhan Harvey and Rosetta Allan (MC)

Each poet will read a selection of poems from recent and past collections.

Towards the end of the evening the finalists of the 2014 New Voices – Emerging Poets competition will be announced and the winner will read their selected poem. This year’s judge, Bob Orr, has been impressed by the poets. We look forward to learning of the winners.

It is both rare for a poet to read one’s poetry aloud to an audience as it is for an audience to hear poetry read and events such as National Poetry Day that encourage reading and listening to poetry should be encouraged.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Divine Muses evening.
