An exciting annual event showcasing unbelievable and exceptional wordsmith talent from wide and far.

After the Saturday heats and Sunday semi-finals in the Nimbin School of Arts Town Hall, the eight finalists perform for the Grand Final Prize on Sunday night. Since the first NPWC in 2003, hundreds of performers have entered the annual event and displayed their talent to an appreciative audience.

Poets have eight minutes to perform one or more poems. The winner of the Grand Final receives $2000. 

This is a hugely popular Nimbin event not to be missed. Treat yourself and enjoy poetry at its best during an entire weekend of brilliant performance.

Sponsored by the community of Nimbin and thanks to all the volunteer support the event grows in size and reputation each season.
