List of excellent poetry books from 2018 chosen by Steve Braunias, Bill Manhire, Courtney Smith and me. Such a good year for poetry not all best books can fit.
Yeah to all the poetry presses in NZ who take risks and keep publishing poetry. Thank you! And the bookshops that put poetry on their shelves. And the festivals that slot in poets. And the readers who keep loving local poetry books. Thank you!
