Young Poets Open mic ( Senior)

Here are all the details for the senior ( ages 13-25) young poets open mic event in Christchurch.

We are really looking forward to hearing your voice and your poems in a supported and inclusive environment. Meet up with other young poets in a great space.

Read, or perform, or come along to listen (but bring a poem to share anyway – will have people willing to read for you if the standing up and reading thing is a bit overwhelming- we’ve all been there!)

Young Poets Open Mic ( junior)

Invite your friends, tell you classmates! You have plenty of time to write a new poem or pull out an old favourite.

A great way to warm up for National Poetry Day.

A supportive environment. We want to hear your voice. We want to hear your poems.

Two events! This one is for ages 6- 12 – but we can be flexible about that! See the next post for the details for the senior event ( ages 13-25)
