Local bar celebrating all things poetry
ONE of Rockhampton's newest bars will play host to its first poetry night this Saturday.

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.
