Amanda Profile

 “Amanda Kennedy is a fresh addition to the New Zealand poetry scene. She has been writing in different capacities for a while, but started poeming out loud in late 2013. This year, she won the 2014 Poetry Idol, NZ’s biggest poetry slam. Her poems and short stories have been shortlisted and awarded runner up and highly commended in a number of different prizes over the last couple of years, but she hasn’t bloody won anything properly until now (yes, her mother was very pleased). Amanda was raised in Henderson Valley and now lives in Three Kings.”
