An essential, annual collection of terrific new poetry from Aotearoa New Zealand

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 #57 features over 150 new poems — including by this year’s featured poet, Tyla Bidois — and essays and reviews of new poetry collections by some of this country’s best-known poets and literary critics. Poems by the winners of the Poetry New Zealand Yearbook Student Poetry Competition are among the line-up.
