This is the post excerpt.

Welcome to the¬†website for Northland’s Poetry Posse.

We’re local folk who like to vocalise.

We’re Northland’s most courageous sages on the stage.

We know we owe Te Tai Tokerau some poe, yo.

Have a cruise around our website to get to know how we enliven the top of the country with poetry, then maybe drop us a line so we can perform wherever you are.


What the Posse got up to in 2016: National Poetry Day Slam

The highlight of 2016 for performance poets was National Poetry Day.

We were deeply grateful to Whangarei’s finest venue The Old Stone Butter Factory for hosting the event, and to Whangarei Girls High School for sending their poets over.

The event was won by Brett Ruys of Whangarei. Second place was Dave Taylor of …somewhere in Northland.

Enjoy the photos.
