SHAKING UP THE MICROPHONE
EMMA CALLAGHAN – setting the microphone on fire!
Golden Bay poet Emma Callaghan is the featured poet at our first ACID ON THE MICROPHONE event for 2023.
She represented Golden Bay/Nelson in the NZ National Poetry Slam in Auckland in November last year and what an impact she made!
Emma made it through to the second round and on the way won the ‘Spirit of the Slam’ Award. Big effort there!! “She smashed it,” said the organisers. “She was amazing.” Thanks to Golden Bay Live Poets Society and the Mussel Inn for the generous sponsorship of travel, accommodation and a little cash that made it possible for Emma to get to Auckland and compete.
“What a time I had,” said Emma, “Thanks to everyone for the wonderful support.”
You won’t want to miss her thought-provoking, comfort-shaking performance on 23 February at the Mussel Inn. You will find Emma’s range of styles and subject matter inspiring and challenging. Love to see you there.
