The Official Wrap Party for Live Below The Line are excited to present POETS BELOW THE LINE. A SHOWCASE OF CREATIVE HUNGER LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE!!

The spoken ­word works of ten poets will salivate your minds. Their words are those written with bodies on the line: with empty hands, and starving hearts.

POETS BELOW THE LINE is a creative collaboration, mining poets from all over our local scene to make global poverty speak. Some hail from youth­project Rising Voices, others from acclaimed performers South Auckland Poets Collective, more from performance poetry collective The Literatti and others are fiercely independent voices.

All are united by a single mantra: to embody a creative response to the global poverty crisis, by challenging themselves to make poetry from below the line, surviving on a meagre $2.25 a day for five days in September.

This is the pen under duress; this is the cortex under pressure. This is poetry below the line.
