National Poetry Day is coming up on Friday 26 August - two days after my new collection New Sea land is launched.
There are events all round the country, including a whole bunch in the Hutt Valley and Wellington.
I'm due to take part in three events on the day, the first two organised by New Sea Land publisher Mākaro Press:
- 12noon-1.15pm: Poets in the Park: A National Poetry Day Event: Glover Park, Ghuznee St Wellington
- 2pm-3.15pm: Buckets of Poets: A National Poetry Day Event: Bucket Fountain, Cuba Mall, Wellington
- 7.30pm-10pm: "Poems of the Season and the Land". This event, at St Mary's Church, 56 Woburn Rd, Lower Hutt (see map), features a great lineup of poets. Check out the poster below!
