Friday August 16th is National Poetry Day in New Zealand, part of the NZ Post Book Awards festival.

On this occasion, Minarets Journal celebrates the success of its first year of quarterly publication (Issue 1, Aug 2012 – Issue 4, Jul 2013). This reading event features poets from all four issues, and also gathers contributors from outside Auckland, who were not present at the original launch events:

Ross Brighton (Chch/Akl)
Ashleigh Young (Wgt)
Iain Britton (Akl)
Gregory Kan (Wgt)
Sarah Natalie Webster (NZ/USA)
Samuel Carey (Akl)

Poems by other contributors, and absent friends unable to attend, will be printed and displayed in large-format posters:

Alex Taylor (Akl)
Joan Fleming (Dun)
Richard Osler (Canada)
Rebecca Nash (Chch)

A video exhibit of macro poetry by James Ganas, and Michael Hessel-Mial (USA) will be projected before, between, and after readings.

The 'Union St Event Centre' is an exciting artist-run studio space in a CBD warehouse.
Issues of Minarets Journal will be available for purchase - $10 with deals for multiple issues.
Some drinks will be provided, and the venue is BYO for celebration to continue post-readings.
