Poetry Shelf connections: takahē 98 goes online today

 

 

 

He aha te mea nui o te ao
What is the most important thing in the world?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
It is the people, it is the people, it is the people

Kia ora e hoa,

Exceptional times call for exceptional measures, and because we have so much exceptional talent packed into our 98th issue, we’ve made the call to publish this edition online, rather than panic our printer and the postie.

This little gem was all set to go to the printer some weeks ago, but the world is a different place now. So we’re switching around our print and online edition and published this little beauty to our website for your reading pleasure. takahē 99 will be our first print issue for this year, all going well (fingers, feathers and fur crossed).

takahē 98 has perfect prose from our guest poet Tim Upperton, fabulous flash from guest writer Elizabeth Morton, and pages of plenty from our incredible contributors. Tiffany Thornley’s artwork comes alive on-screen, and the accompanying essay from Jane Zusters takes us back to the Women’s Art Movement and a bitterly cold 1970s winter.

So grab your favourite tipple, the good crackers and a wheel of cheese, and settle in for a read that will make you happy to be at home. Or bookmark the site, take a bite here and there, and nip back once the magic has fully settled into your soul.

Whether you nibble, gnaw or annihilate it in one sitting, takahē 98 is the nourishment you’ve been craving.

Kia kaha, and keep in touch.

Please feel free to forward this on to all your creative friends, and get in touch any time if you have any questions.
