An essential, annual collection of terrific New Zealand poetry
Each year Poetry New Zealand, this country’s longest-running poetry magazine, rounds up important new poetry, reviews and essays, making it the ideal way to catch up with the latest poetry from both established and emerging New Zealand poets.
The packed issue #55 features 180 new poems — including by this year’s featured poet, Aimee-Jane Anderson-O’Connor and by John Allison, Stephanie Christie, Michele Leggott, Wes Lee, Elizabeth Morton, David Eggleton, Bob Orr and Kiri Piahana-Wong — and essays and extensive reviews of new poetry collections.
Poems by the winners of both the Poetry New Zealand Award and the Poetry New Zealand Schools Award are among the line-up.
