11th October 2016 @ Poetrylive

8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd

Guest Poet: Anita Arlov

anitaAnita wrote her first poem in 2011 (if you discount Autumn Leaves in standard 2.) She read it the first time she came to Poetry Live. No one told her it was a slam heat, or indeed what a slam was, or what the ringing bell meant. When she recovered she established Inside Out Open Mic for Writers, a monthly gig open to any kind of writing – flash, micro, short story, poetry – and showcasing musician guests.She gained second place in the Kevin Ireland Poetry Competition 2013.

Anita’s read poetry at many venues for example, Rhythm & Verse, Arts Festivals, and Lounge, and has had poems published in various journals including NZ Poetry Yearbook and Broadsheet.dubtext-2

She’s working with a group to bring the next NZ Poetry Conference & Festival to Auckland in November next year.

Guest Musician: Dubtext

Dubtext explores the sonic fringes of ambient, dub, downbeat and minimalist techno using found sounds and analogue synthesisers. Regularly seen on the streets and clubs of K Rd, Dubtext combines improvisation and spontaneity with electronic music that you can dance to but is designed for listening

All welcome to read/perform
