Mark Pirie of Night Press does the honours

15 years after editing and publishing my Selected Poems Talking Pictures (HeadworX, Wellington,2000) Mark Pirie ‘thought it would be nice to do a feature in honour’ and produced his 15th New Zealand poetry issue of  broadsheet under the Night Press imprint because he selects and edits these well produced ‘classy little numbers’ at night after finishing his day job to pay for them.

Along with eight of my own poems, Mark has ‘continued the tradition of broadsheet  features by inviting  some of my friends to contribute to the issue’ .There is a wide ranging variety of work including recent poetry from Vincent O’Sullivan ( the most recent NZ Poet Laureate), Alistair Paterson, Judith Haswell, Annie Newcomer (USA), Kevin Ireland, Peter Bland, Dorothy Howie, Karen Zelas, Rosetta Alan, Anita Arlov and Jan Kemp among others.

The broadsheet issues are printed as limited editions but are available on-line by clicking here
