New Zealand doesn’t have a National Poetry Month. We get Montana Poetry Day instead – this year on Friday July 24th. Super-important for me, because that’s when The Summer King will be launched!
Come on people, share your wisdom. Who knows, it might even lead to the organisation of an event here in Christchurch!
A couple of suggestions I’ve come across:
- poetry quizz night
- poetry speed-dating (feedback on your poem from lotsa people)
- poetry decathlon (write in different forms/modes/topics; some before, some on the spot; audience vote)
Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
