Terrific new New Zealand poetry

Continually in print since 1951, when it was established by leading poet Louis Johnson, this annual collection of new poetry, reviews and essays is the ideal way to catch up with the latest poetry from established and emerging New Zealand poets.

Issue #51 features 128 new poems by writers including featured poet Elizabeth Morton, Riemke Ensing, Mohamed Hassan, Michele Leggott, Kiri Piahana-Wong and Elizabeth Smither, as well as essays by Janet Charman, Lisa Samuels and Bryan Walpert, and reviews of 33 new poetry collections.

‘Poetry New Zealand Yearbook, in its revitalised form, and as a hub for poetry conversations, is now an essential destination for poetry fans.’ — Paula Green, Sunday Star-Times

‘This belongs in the section of your bookcase you’ve set aside for quiet little miracles that we can only be grateful are still part of our literary life.’ — Paul Little, North & South

‘. . . one of the best New Zealand literary journals around.’ — Siobhan Harvey, New Zealand Herald
