The Antislam - Worst Poet Wins

Presented by Motif Poetry

Worst poet wins! We don’t mean bad: we mean hilariously terrible, laugh-out-loud embarrassing, entertainingly cringe-worthy poetry so awful that it transcends quality – becoming genius.

Back by popular demand, poets, actors and comedians from around Wellington are preparing themselves to bring their worst!

This event is a fundraiser for Motif Poetry Charitable Trust. Full cast to be announced....

Price: Pay what you can (from $5)
