Boat for poetry

Christine Ling and Margot Sorensen have made a giant paper origami boat which will be set up in the National Library Foyer on 25 August for National Poetry Day.

A sea of words will wash over the National Library on Friday.

A giant paper origami boat – waiting to be filled with words from the public – will anchor in the library’s foyer as part of National Poetry Day.

Created by Whitireia graduate diploma in publishing (applied) students Christine Ling and Margot Sorensen, the boat is the centre of a competition aiming to make poetry more accessible.
