Two book covers posted today! One on Poetry Box for my new children’s collection and the cover of Wild Honey: Reading NZ Women’s Poetry here on Poetry Shelf. Plus I have my new adult poems The Track out in July – so four years of writing activity is arriving in a flurry. So exciting and nerve-wracking all in the same gulp.
Wild Honey is out in August with Massey University Press and we are planning various events to celebrate its arrival. Sarah Laing painted the amazing cover which stretches over onto the back – along with drawings for inside.
The cover features Fleur Adcock Alison Wong Elizabeth Smither Ursula Bethell Jessie Mackay Blanche Baughan Robin Hyde Selina Tusitala Marsh and Airini Beautrais with more poets on the back.
My birthday treat! Two book covers with a third in the wings.
