The winner of the The New Zealand Post Book Award poetry prize pack is …..

Back home after a wonderful school tour of Christchurch thanks to the New Zealand Book Council.

I put the followers of this blog in a hat and pulled out Johanna Emeney. She will get the bundle of poetry books shorted-listed for The New Zealand Post Book Awards (including Best First Books) thanks to Auckland University Press, Hue & Cry and Victoria University Press.

Thoughts for this new blog were tinkering away in my head while I was away and I really like the idea of having a secondary-school day where I post poems from students. I am going to see how it goes but I want to post a few on the last Friday of every month. If you can forward this to English teachers or students who might be interested I would be most grateful.

    If you email me a message I’ll put it on the school library list serv and ask them to pass on to English teachers. You need to find someone who can put it on the English teacher’s list serv. Do you know Tania Roxborogh? Pretty sure she would be on that. I’ll certainly pass on to the teacher at school who teaches creative writing.
