World Poetry Day: Poems on Prescription CANCELLED : Dunedin Fringe Festival

World Poetry Day: Poems on Prescription CANCELLED

Poetry has long been extolled for its power to uplift the spirit and soothe the soul.

Drop in to our poetry clinic on World Poetry Day for your injection of restorative verse.

No appointment necessary – the poetry “doctor” will be ready to prescribe you a “therapy” session with some of Dunedin’s most excellent poets, and a collectible prescription gift of poetry to take away.

Presented by Dunedin Public Libraries and Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature, with the support of Poems in the Waiting Room
