Motif Poetry & Common Poets Society presents
Hawke's Bay Poetry Slam Champions
We started the Hawke's Bay Poetry Slam in 2018, and have been delighted to watch the community grow and flourish. In 2019 we introduced the 'Spirit of the Slam Award' to recognise the poet who best embodied the kaupapa of our event. These winners have gone on to be sought after performers, published writers, community leaders and powerful poets. Our thanks to Wardini Books, Common Room and our other partners.
