The Art of Excavation

It’s an honour to have had my first book of poetry The Art of Excavation included in the long list for the 2016 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages of love and support ~ it’s wonderful to know that the book is in excellent company, especially alongside of Chris Tse’s How To be Dead in a Year of Snakes and John Dennison’s Otherwise. The short list will be announced in March 2016, fingers crossed! For a full list of all of the books on the long list, check out: 3L4U5393
