Poetry Live August 18th

Tonight is the one you've all been waiting for - the launch of Live Lines 2, the annual publication of Poetry Live.

Those who have been included in this issue are invited to take the open mic stand and read their poems and some others - 5 mins per poet. There will be no guest musician in case the list of readers is nice and long :)

To put you all in the mood though, we have Georgina Monro as our guest poet. Georgina comes to us all the way from Titirangi, Waitakere, has a Dip. Drama from Toi Whakaari, and took second place at the Going West Poetry Slam 2008 as well as being a finalist for Poetry Idol in 2009. So come along and enjoy her poetry!

Copies of Live Lines #2 will be on sale. They make excellent Chrissy presents, for those out there who have forethought. Live Lines #2 raises funds for Live Lines #3.

Submissions are now open for Live Lines #3. You can submit to Live Lines #3 if you read at Poetry Live during 2009. Submissions are open until September 30th.

You can submit 3-5 poems in hard copy to Poetry Live on Tuesday nights or by posting them to 16 Millais Street, Grey Lynn.

We no longer try to include a poem from everyone. Send your best work.
