We are delighted to debut a new cover for a fine line‘s Winter edition.
In this edition, Jeannine Hall Gailey writes about promoting one’s poetry despite illness and tyrannies of distance, with advice that feels especially relevant in our time of social distancing and preventive isolation. Xiaole Zhan shares her thoughts on being called to poetry, while Laurice Gilbert announces the winner of the Lauris Edmond Memorial Award. Revel in our Members’ Poems, as they savour the pith and juice of life with poems on the theme of Fruit.
I am delighted to present Cadence Chung, our Featured Student Poet for the Winter edition, part of our initiative to spotlight promising NZ talent. She receives student memberships from both the NZPS and the NZ Society of Authors, and poetry books, thanks to the generosity of Unity Books Wellington and Arty Bees Wellington.
