Ah poem bliss: Summer Noelle is giving poetry a little spot in the sun

Summer Noelle has invited a number of New Zealand poets to talk about and read a poem they wish they had written.

I have just pre-recorded my choice with Noelle (you will have to wait until summer to find out which poem!)

What a treat to have a conversation with someone who has read and loved the poem too with such enthusiasm. After I finished, I realised I spend a lot of my time writing poems, and writing abut poems, but very rarely having conversations about poems. Ha! It is such a pleasure.

Maybe I need to invent a poetry book club.

Bravo Summer Noelle and RNZ!


A taster of what’s to come:

Bill Manhire’s kicking us off plus Paula Green, Michele Leggot, Ashleigh Young, Joan Fleming, Airini Beautrais, Elizabeth Smither.  Plus many more to come.
