Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
Posted at midnight, 15 December 2015, is the last Tuesday
Poem post after five incredible years. It is a collaborative poem constructed
by site founders and curators Claire Beynon and Mary McCallum from lines
written by the Tuesday Poets past and present.
A circle is being drawn around Tuesday Poem. There will be
no more fresh posts at the hub, but it will remain online to be visited and
enjoyed – an astonishing archive of work by the Tuesday Poets and those they've
chosen to showcase. There will be Tuesday Poets who will continue to post poems
on Tuesdays. All power to them.
Tuesday Poem, founded in New Zealand, but spanning the
globe, has been a perfect poetical collaboration. Do visit. Say hello.
The opening lines of the poem say it all:
now you are privy to
a thousand thousand things. (Jen Compton)
