Poems in the Waiting Room 2014

Poems in the Waiting Room is launching its 2014 Poetry Competition next week.

Poems in the Waiting Room (NZ) is a charitable arts in health trust which has been operating in New Zealand since 2008. Every season 6000 free poetry cards are distributed to medical waiting rooms, rest homes, hospices and prisons throughout the South Island and lower North Island. The cards may be read on site or taken home for further reading or sharing. Each seasons poems are also transcribed into Braille booklets which are distributed by the RNZFB.

The competition has three aims; to provide a new selection of poems to use in the cards, to advertise the project, and to assist with the printing of future PitWR seasonal cards.
