It’s a super little tome; there should be one in every home!
It will also be an opportunity to say goodbye to Ron and Saray, who are departing for Mexico and Colombia on October 17. They have been invited to take part in The World Poetry Festival in Mexico City (October 20 – 27) and La Salon de Poesia, which in part of The International Book Fair in Guadalajara (Nov 29 – Dec 7). Please come along with a poem or a song, ready for some fun.
“It wouldn’t be too pretentious to say that Ron Riddell is the most traveled New Zealand poet. His recognisable style, kindness and passion in his words, travel long distances.
Printable Reality’s “Stage2Page” publishing series are concocted to celebrate contemporary poetry, poetry that jumps off the page on to the stage, and grabs you. In Ron’s case, the stage is anywhere, from any readers heart to live events and literary festivals across the world. We are fortunate enough to capture some of the new haikus and poems in this beautiful volume, please enjoy the places it takes you to”.
