Tarns Hood is a Wellington based Performance Poet and the region’s current Poetry Slam Champion!

She’s an active and visible member of the Wellington poetry community, seen regularly performing at fundraisers, festivals and private events across the city. Tarns is a┬árhythmically risky Raconteur, whose material often touches on addiction, mental health, and ordinary, everyday human observation. Her work has been featured across local and national radio, NZPS Literary Journals and her page poetry can be found in Regenerate Magazine.

Her style is street-raw, quick and linguistically twisted – she wants people to stop cringing when they hear the word “poetry” and determines to continue redefining the scene.
