More About Poetry New Zealand

"Like anyone else, I have my prejudices," writes editor Jack Ross. "Long wordy poems about nothing in particular do little for me... If there's really only one striking or original idea in your poem, you do have to ask yourself whether it couldn't be edited back to be shorter and punchier."

Established 1951.
