Yep, it’s that time of year again: the 2010 Canterbury Poets’ Autumn Poetry Readings series is just about ready to rock.
2010 is the 20th Anniversary of New Zealand’s longest-running poetry readings series. In a fascinating twist, this year the guest poets for the final evening will be … the winners of the Open Mic from the previous 7 weeks! (Now there’s some incentive for you.)
