Poetry NZ Yearbook 2021
Poetry New Zealand is this country's longest-running poetry magazine. Each year they compile new poetry, reviews and essays, making it easy to catch up with the latest poetry from both established and emerging New Zealand poets.
This issue, #55, features 182 poems by 129 poets, including:
- Elizabeth Morton
- Michele Leggott
- Essa May Ranapiri
- Bob Orr
- Kiri Piahana-Wong
- Jordan Hamel
- David Eggleton
- Mere Taito
- The winning entries in the Poetry New Zealand Prize
- Reviews of 25 new poetry books.
Compiled during a pandemic, these are poems written - in the words of editor Tracey Slaughter - when 'the only line to follow was deeper in, darker down, to poetry. The page was the only safe place our breath could go.'
