Nelson Live Poets

Nelson Live Poets meet on the third Tuesday of the month. Their next meeting on Tuesday 18 February at The Prince Albert, 113 Nile Street, Nelson, features guest poet Ian Coulls from Australia.

Ian Coulls is a very strange person who distinguishes himself from many other musicians and songwriters by not wearing caps backwards and by not making ‘significant gestures’ with his hands or fingers. He is sickeningly modest, although under torture he may admit to playing music in England, France, the United States and New Zealand as well as three tours of the eastern states of Australia.

He has published three chapbooks of poetry, Danse macabre, Words, and On the Road to Somewhere Else, and three books of short stories, The Complete and Utter Truth about the World and Everything In It, Where the Hell is Heaven? and Bookends. Early in 2020, Coulls will publish another book of poetry, Leaves of Life: Words, Words, Words.

Doors open at 7 pm. Bring a poem to share or just enjoy the show. Singer songwriters are also welcome. To read, simply sign up on the night. Gold coin koha entry. For more information contact Deirdre Lusby at dlusby@xtra.co.nz
