National Poetry Day, 22nd August 2014

Invitation to and photographs from NZ National Poetry Day 2014. We had seven poets read – all published by Victoria University Press.

Our invitation to the event as it appeared in the Dominion Post.

The books wait for their poets.

It was a popular event, with seats filling fast.

Kate Camp.

Emily Dobson.

Helen Heath.

Caoilinn Hughes.

Maria McMillan.

Frances Samuel.

Marty Smith.

The audience overflowed into the front of the shop.

Wellingtonians love poetry.

James Brown doesn’t really think poetry is tripe.

Louise Wrightson adds her perspective.
