Rebecca Rushbrook was the winner, taking home the big shiny cup and $2000, a very happy woman.

Tug Dumbly was the People’s Choice winner. Another fantastic weekend of spoken word, shared, many people experienced Performance Poetry for the first time and now KNOW they actually do ‘like’ poetry. It was a wonderful effort by everyone to make this happen. Thanks, and thanks again. Gail.


Congratulations to the 2012 NPPWC winner; Candy Royalle and all those who performed including, the Peoples Choice; Stefanie Petrik.

Most of the finalists performances are available on video.

Since the first NPPWC in 2003, hundreds of performers have entered the annual event and displayed their talent to an appreciative audience. 38 poets performed in the 2011 event and provided plenty to think about for the spectators at the Town Hall all weekend. You can select artists performances from the Poets index page.



Congratulations to Doubting Thomas the Champion of 2011, and to Zelly Oops for “The Peoples’ Choice award”.
