New Zealand Poetry Society – Te Hunga Tito Ruri o Aotearoa proudly presents the 2011 Anthology : “Ice diver”, edited by Linzy Forbes.
This anthology was created from entries to the 2011 New Zealand Poetry Society Competitions: the award winning poems and haiku, and a selection chosen blind by the editor from this year’s 2000+ entries. It is a lively mix of work by adults, children, well-known and first-time poets, from fifteen different countries.
The theme of the competition was open, as always. Subjects covered in the book include relationships, loss, landscape, the past, childhood, grandparents, animals, war, food and, not unexpectedly, earthquakes.
Readings from Auckland contributors, details TBC.
Books will be available for sale $27 – cash or cheque only.
