Two free community events are focusing on poetry in Ngaio and Crofton Downs this August.
The first is an opportunity to have a go at writing and sharing poems in response to photographs taken around the area. You can look, respond and share via a display at Cummings Park Library, Ottawa Road, Ngaio, Wellington, 14-28 August.
The second is a poetry reading, also at the library, in association with Phantom Billstickers National Poetry Day – 7.30-9.30pm, Friday 25 August. A number of terrific poets have associations with Ngaio and Crofton Downs – living or working here, going to school or studying in our community. The evening will include some of these poets reading their work, as well as a sampling of other writers with connections to our area who have written and worked with poems. Includes open mic.
