This is scary. I do applaud all the boutique poetry presses running on skimpy rags along with the university presses with an enduring commitment to poetry in times such as these.

What are the figures for festival attendances in NZ sessions, NZ book purchases, NZ book reviews, a comparison of NZ books published?

Somehow NZ poetry is clinging on; somehow we poetry fans our doing our best to support it. Writing, reading, buying, sharing, debating, promoting, reviewing, interviewing, loving, not wanting to do without!
