Devenport Library Association Events


Poetry comes home to Devonport, Via ferries at the bottom of the garden*

*yes we are quoting our famous local poet, A.R.D Fairburn!

Tuesday 14th March at Devonport Library – 7.30pm

The poets are descending on Devonport Library to celebrate the publication of the         New Zealand Poetry Yearbook 2017, edited by Jack Ross and published by Massey University Press.

The book is being launched by Devonport’s own Michele Leggott, and the evening will include readings by ten poets, including Yearbook 2017’s featured poet Elizabeth Morton.

Words, wine, smiles.... It will be a night to remember!



Panel Discussion: Creative Writing courses, are they worth it?

Devonport Library Tuesday 28th March 2017, 7.15pm to 9.00pm

Chair Roger Hall.

Is taking a creative writing course essential to getting a novel published? Such courses inspired Jonathan Cullinane (“Red Herring”) and Paula Morris (“Queen of Beauty”); while Tina Shaw and Graeme Lay succeeded without. A panel discussion chaired by Roger Hall (who has given many a course but never took one.)
