A Loft-full of Poetry - ChCh Poetry Slam Final 2011

The Housewife from Hell lights up the room.

Oh, and slam we did! Great turn out at the loft upstairs in the Pegasus Arms for the inaugural Christchurch Poetry Slam (Poetry Idol is dead - long live the Slam!).

Check out the images (apologies for the artiness, Kez was enjoying a night off MCing duties rather too much!)

A full complement of poets entered the fray and the standard was excellent - our audience judges had their work cut out for them - it was close run thing too, but alas, only the mighty would go through to the national final in Wellington on 29th October - and they are:

Danielle O'Halloran
Andrew Coyle
Ben Brown
plus wildcard entry: Eli Litzelman

A formidable team indeed - look out NZ, the south will rise!

Josephine Parsnip

Slam Master Mike (he's on fire!)

For many the anticipation was too much as they attempted
to look like they were having a good time
