Registrations are Closed

Kia ora everyone,

Organiser registrations and seed funding applications have now closed. We've had some brilliant events and competitions registered this year!

Our Events Calendar will launch 1 August. In the meantime we are posting competitions on the website as they open for submissions. Also keep an eye out on the website, Facebook and Twitter (both @NZPoetryDay) for poetry news and quotes and readings from the 2018 Ockham poetry finalists and winners.

The countdown to our 20th year celebration has begun! See you on the 24th August, Phantom Billstickers National Poetry Day 2018!
