20 Poets in Devonport celebrate National Poetry Day in style!

Friday night saw a packed (wall to wall packed!) Main Gallery for the National Poetry Day event – 20 Poets in Devonport – which we co-hosted with the Michael King Writers Centre. The poetry was exceptional, some pieces were read to honour those who are no longer with us (Barry Brickell, A.R.D. Fairburn, Janet Frame, Lee Dowrick, Denis Glover, R A K Mason & Alan Curnow), other pieces were contemporary and experimental, by poets young and old. Each reader had the room captivated with their unique literary compositions – the perfect way to celebrate 20 years of National Poetry Day!
