ONE of Rockhampton's newest bars will play host to its first poetry night this Saturday.

To celebrate International Poetry Day on March 21, The Red Dahlia Bar will be hosting a night for local poets, writers and word-lovers to share their work and love of language.

Potent Poetry will kick off at 6.30pm and include a "top-secret” poetry challenge.

There will be prizes up for grabs for the best original poem, best reading of a poem by another person and best response to the secret challenge.

People who are reading at the event are advised to bring a copy of their poem for the secret challenge.
