Hope to see you there!
Paula was interviewed today on Radio New Zealand National about children's poetry, encouraging children to write poetry and her popular children's poetry blog, Poetry Box. It's such a lovely, warming and inspiring conversation and her love of poetry, and her love of sharing poetry shine through. She also talks about the anthology of children's poetry that she's in the process of compiling.
You can listen to it here: http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/ninetonoon/audio/2560115/children%27s-poetry.
I've just added a new page for The Rope Walk, by Maria McMillan, which is just about on its way to the printer - the text part of the book anyway. The cover has already been printed, and isn't it looking gorgeous! It's been letterpress printed by Joe Buchanan, Maria's partner, and yes, that is a die cut (ie hole) in the centre, through which we can see a linocut of a sailing ship, also done by the very talented Joe.
Launch plans are underway, and I hope you can join us. We're launching it on Saturday 13th July, at 3 pm, at the Aro Community Centre in Aro Valley. Here's the Facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/events/202894136531214/.
Here's a link to the great interview Paula did with Lynn Freeman, which was broadcast on Radio New Zealand National yesterday: http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/artsonsunday/audio/2557250/poet-paula-green
Also, Paula recently did an interview with Sarah Dunn, books editor at the Nelson Mail, who has a books blog on Stuff: http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/blogs/the-baby-seal-book-club/8742194/The-Bakers-Thumbprint-An-Interview-with-Paula-Green.
Paula Green is going to be talking to Lynn Freeman about The Baker's Thumbprint on the Arts on Sunday show on Radio New Zealand National this Sunday (ie tomorrow), at around 2.35 (well, a little after – at 2.35 young Pacific poet Courtney Sina Meredith will be on).
I'll post a link to the interview here afterwards, in case you miss it.
