A dose of terrific new New Zealand poetry

Poetry New Zealand, this country’s longest-running poetry magazine, showcases new writing from New Zealand and overseas. It presents the work of talented newcomers as well as that of established voices. Issue #53 features 130 new poems — including work by this year’s featured poet, Stephanie Christie — essays, and reviews of 30 new poetry collections.

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

‘I look forward to The Poetry New Zealand Yearbook each year, because it’s so wonderfully filled with all things poetry. It’s also a great way to see the current landscape of New Zealand poetry, with familiar names making an appearance alongside newer poets. . . . As well as being an important space for the work of New Zealand poets, this new installment will inspire writers to continue writing and to introduce new methods in their craft.’ — Emma Shi, The Reader
