Writers on Mondays - reminder
Graft of Poetry: Helen Heath, Joan Fleming, Lynn Davidson, Harry Ricketts
Four poets with collections published in the last twelve
months offer a sampler of their work, and discuss the long and possibly
rocky road to publication. Helen Heath (Graft) and Joan Fleming (The Same as Yes) are
first-timers; Lynn Davidson (whose Common
Ground mixes poetry and essay) and Harry Ricketts (Just Then) are both
teachers of creative writing with longer track records. Does it get any
easier after the first book? Chair: Chris Price.
Marae, Level 4, Te Papa
These events are open to the public and free of charge.
Writers on Mondays is presented with the Museum of New
Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, and additional support from Circa Theatre,
City Gallery Wellington and the New Zealand Centre for Literary
Translation at Victoria University.
