Spring Fever Is Well & Truly Here—With the Poetry In Performance Spring Season 2012
And lo and behold, into my inbox popped the panui (notice) for the Canterbury Poets’ Collective, Poetry In Performance Spring Season 2012.
And I have to say, it’s a great line-up! If you are in Christchurch for any/all of the evenings it would be well worthwhile popping along for a listen and to meet the poets.
(And where I’ve featured a poet here “on Anything, Really” I have linked to the poem so you can sneak a look at his or her work.)
But anyway, to the notice:
