Massey University Press warmly invites you to join us for the launch of Poetry Aotearoa Yearbook 2024: a raw, essential new collection from established and emerging voices. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP. Books will be available for sale and signing.

For the 2024 edition of the Poetry Aotearoa Yearbook, editor Tracey Slaughter has once again hit the zeitgeist in her selection of 123 new poems from an exhaustive submission process.

Another packed issue, #58 showcases the raw and the vital — including from this year’s featured poet, Carin Smeaton — and a blistering introduction from Slaughter herself. In addition there are excellent reviews of a crop of recent poetry books.

With work by both established and emerging New Zealand poets, the Yearbook is essential reading for all poetry fans.
