May 2017: Poetry here and there

Poetry is alive and well in all sorts of places – at the Fringe Bar in Wellington where Mary-Jane Duffy and I read poems in April and the audience helped us along, and at Featherston Booktown. Escalator Press authors had a series of sessions, and Landing Press sneaked in on one of them, where Rob Hack and I read a bunch of poems together. Featherston Booktown brought together an amazing range of workshops and readings – I’d absolutely recommend it.
