Nelson Live Poets

Nelson Live Poets usually meet on the third Tuesday of the month. Their next meeting on Tuesday 16  September at The Prince Albert, 113 Nile Street, Nelson, features guest poet Gary Elford.

A Christchurch-based poet and entertainer, Gary has been writing and performing poetry for the last 25 years. Born and raised on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, he was exposed early to the joys of bush poetry through the writing of Lawson, Kendall, and of course Banjo Peterson. He has self-published four books of poetry, in a range of styles from epic historical pieces to humorous stories of people and situations.

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
