Fierce Imaginations

Enter the worlds of three outspoken Wellington poets, where eco-politics and murder mystery walk hand-in-hand.

Tim Jones is a poet, fiction writer, editor and activist, who has been awarded the Janet Frame Memorial Award for Literature. In New Sea Land, he writes of the mapping and re-naming of land and sea and imagines a world where one rises up to take the other away.

Stefanie Lash is a poet and passionate archivist. Her collection Bird Murder is a gothic murder mystery with an albino huia, a stranger in the attic and a pink-haired woman. And there's a hidden story of the cost of environmental plunder in early New Zealand.

Harvey Molloy is a poet, teacher and activist. His second collection Udon by The Remarkables takes the reader from the death of Joy Division's Ian Curtis to the world of the Anglo-Saxon to the eco-politics of New Zealand.
