Auckland Writers and Readers Festival
The Auckland Writers and Readers Festival ran from 15 - 19 May, 2013. It is a festival of literature and ideas, bringing together acclaimed writers, readers and thinkers through innovative programming.
Full details on the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival can be found at their website.
Friday 17 May saw our student talents on show at the annual University of Auckland Poetry Slam. Emotion ran high as nine students slammed whimsical, sassy, honest and political poetry to an audience of 400.
Special international guest Miles Merrill (courtesy of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival) was joined by Grace Taylor and Dr Kirsten Zemke to complete the judging panel for the evening.
The top three places were taken out by Rewa Worley, Hussam Al-diery and Maria Yeonhee Ji. Congratulations to everyone who took part!
