After taking a hiatus in 2012, Anahera is delighted to announce we have two poetry books forthcoming in 2013. The first is publisher Kiri Piahana-Wong’s first collection, night swimming – release date June. The second is Between the Kindling and the Blaze: personal reflections on the concept of mana, by Ben Brown (written on the Māori writer’s residency at the Michael King Writer’s Centre in 2011). Release date early December. Ben is an award-winning children’s book author and renowned performance poet – Between the Kindling is his first poetry collection. This book will be launched in both the poet’s home town of Lyttleton and in Auckland. So an exciting year ahead! We will also shortly re-open for submissions. Please keep an eye on our ‘Contact’ page for further details.
