Wellington poets Tim Jones and Keith Westwater read from their new collections.
Keith Westwater's new book 'Tongues of Ash' won Interactive Publishing's Best First Book Award.
"There is a no-nonsense specificity about Keith's poems, a refusal to privilege the smooth over the roughnesses of human experience....the book begins with an annotated map of Wellington as a special insert - which has room for romantic and family love, weather, landscapes, rocks and history." - Jack Ross, poet and academic
Tim Jones's new book 'Men Briefly Explained' was described by writer Mary McCallum as:
"Tim Jones' new collection holds men up to the light with poems that are intimate and playful, smart and satirical. He focuses on the rituals and carapaces of men and the relevance of that gender in the future. Men Briefly Explained is an engaging and provocative read."
