Poets Jordan Hamel, Rebecca Hawkes, Claudia Jardine and Liz Breslin are doing four shows between "the Gateway to the Southern Alps" and "a pretty good Plan D."

Catch these poets being proud and down with the south at one of their shows. Think poetry, wit, and jokes with a penchant for the pastoral. And do the old girl a favour, please tell your mates.

Poets will have books available to purchase via cash or bank transfer.

Don't be shy. We'd love to meet any and all poetry enthusiasts on our journey.

We are so grateful to have the support of the Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust.
