Later this month, I’ll be the guest reader at the NZ Poetry Society in Wellington.  It’s upstairs at the Thistle Inn (in Thorndon, opposite Archives NZ; you know, the oldest pub in Wellington where Te Rauparaha was rumoured to paddle his waka up to the front door before the coastline changed forever and where Katherine Mansfield used to hang out; no, not the one up the top of Cuba St, that’s Thistle Hall, this is the Thistle Inn) and there’ll be an open mic to start.  Hope to see you there!

NZPS: Poets’ Corner

Monday 17th February, 7.30pm
Thistle Inn, 3 Mulgrave St, Central Wellington
Open mic – all welcome to participate. NZPS welcomes new poets as well as those with more experience.  Guest Poet for February: Janis Freegard.

I’ts a good month for poetry in Wellington.  Marty Smith’s boook launch is on Saturday 15th and  Harry Ricketts will be reading at Meow on Sunday 16th. 

And I’m pretty chuffed at the moment because one of my poems was commended in the Magma Poetry competition.
