Poets set aside the niceties and throw down like their lives depend on it in the Christchurch Poetry Slam, breathing fire and raising the bar a little more each time over three intense rounds. Did they nail it? You be the judge: the audience rules at the Poetry Slam. The winner will represent Christchurch in the national poetry slam finals. Hosted by the team behind the Catalyst Open Mic nights, Doc Drumheller and Ciaran Fox.
