event information


Ten poets find themselves stranded on stage in front of a live audience with just their guts, wits and the hope of surviving a series of spontaneous challenges to compete for the chance to be crowned Survivor Poet 2012. The castaway poets must also survive the sometimes unfair and unpredictable voting by their peers or achieve immunity through the power of their poetry.

Stay tuned for scenes from the poetic tribal council and find out who will be sent to Exile Island and who will find the hidden immunity idol. Joined by cameo performances from your host, Ciaran Fox, and the judges, Doc Drumheller, David Eggleton and Bernadette Hall.

'Think you've got what it takes to be a Survivor Poet?' Auditions for this event will be held at the Catalyst Poetry Open Mic Night at the Pegasus Arms upstairs 14 Oxford Terrace, Christchurch,Tuesday 7 August, 8.00pm.
