Magnificent Moon is the eagerly awaited debut collection from one of the new stars of New Zealand poetry. Ashleigh Young’s poems have been appearing in magazines for 10 years. She gained an MA in Creative Writing with Distinction from the International Institute of Modern Letters in 2009, winning the Adam Prize. While living in London she has won many new readers with her blog eyelashroaming.wordpress.com. Ashleigh returns to New Zealand in August.
