Motueka Live Poets

Motueka Live Poets meet monthly on the third Wednesday at Motueka Yacht Club, Ward Street (off Wharf Road), Port Motueka at 7 pm (note new venue). Their next meeting on Wednesday 19 February 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.

Everyone is welcome to attend or participate. Poets and singer-songwriters can sign up on the night. Gold coin koha entry. For more information contact Maggie Brown at mzbrown@slingshot.co.nz , phone 03-9298150 or text 021-1280991.
