AUP New Poets 6

Author(s): Ben Kemp


Post-it notes and shopping lists, Japanese monks and children's lungs: AUP New Poets 6 is a deep dive into the rich diversity of New Zealand poetry today. Relaunched under the editorship of Anna Jackson in 2019, AUP New Poets 6 features substantial selections from the poetry of BenKemp, Vanessa Crofskey and Chris Stewart. We shift from Kemp's slow-paced attentive readings of place and people in a selection moving between Japan and New Zealand, to the velocity of Vanessa Crofskey's fierce, funny, intimate and political poetry, which takes the form of shopping lists, Post-it notes, graphs, erasures, a passenger arrival card and even "poetry", and finally to Chris Stewart's visceral take on the domestic, the nights cut to pieces by teething, the gravity of love and the churn of time. AUP New Poets 6 is an arresting introduction to the rich diversity of contemporary New Zealand poetry.
