Michael Schmidt is inviting New Zealand poetry fans to subscribe (with a special rate for students) to PN Review as it relaunches in September.


From Karl Stead: ‘PN Review is giving itself a new look and hoping for new subscribers.  It comes out five times a year, big page format, very well produced and edited by Michael Schmidt of Carcanet Press  It is the one international literary magazine that has paid serious and consistent attention to New Zealand poets and poetry.


From Michael Schmidt:

We have always been close to New Zealand poetry – Allen Curnow, Bill Manhire, Karl Stead, Greg O’Brien and John Dennison have been among the formative Antipodean figures in the magazine’s long history.

We regard this relaunch as a new beginning. The magazine, now forty-three years old, remains true to its origins but it is radically refreshed, continuing its editorial voyage of discovery and keeping up the critical conversations.

We are active on social media, and if you are interested you can explore our website, Facebook and twitter presences.

Subscribers receive six print and digital issues a year, access to the celebrated digital archive, and you will be invited to our public events around the country throughout the year. Current subscribers are free to submit work to us digitally.

I hope we can welcome you during September.

All best
