Poetic (in)Justice wrap up

23Nov10
Thanks to everyone who came along and shared their protest poems at the Poetic (in)Justice Open Mic Night. We had everything from war poems to James K Baxter’s commentary on mixed flatting.  It was moving, thought-provoking and, at times, funny, and it all helped us highlight International PEN Day of the Imprisoned Writer. Read more about PEN here: www.internationalpen.org.uk.
In the end the winner was Judith with a reading of The Golf Links by Sarah Norcliffe Cleghorn. Congratulations as well to Gwenda Rowlands who won the Open Mic session and took home a bottle of Olssesns Gewurztraminer as well as a chance to spend the month with Poem Bunny.
Here are a few snaps from the evening:

Wanaka poetry fans agree there is no such thing as protesting too much...

 

It's official: Chris Horan proves that Siegfried Sassoon sounds best in Liverpudlian.
