New Zealand’s inaugural inter-high school Spoken Word Poetry Slam Word - The Front Line showcases up and coming and extremely talented youth poets. Not an easy battle, the competition started with 185 young people from 36 teams representing schools spreading right across Auckland. After making it through the gruelling semi-final heats the top 6 high schools are set to share their stories in an explosion of youth expression. 

It is the only creative battlefield of its kind, equipping young people with poetry prowess for an opportunity to battle it out and confront the challenges that their generation faces. 

If you are up for an incredible night of poetry which will leave you moved and inspired you best get yourself along to Word – The Front Line.
