The Poetry Archive of NZ Aotearoa (PANZA) now has over 5,000 titles.
Thanks to all those who have donated to the Archive over the past year. The Poetry Archive of New Zealand catalogue has now been significantly updated to reflect many new acquisitions in March and April.
The autumn update includes the receipt of 200 titles from poet Robin Fry, including a number of issues of Landfall, Takahe, Quote, Unquote, Kokako (the winter issue of Spin) and other periodicals and anthologies.
The Archive began in February 2010 with around 3,000 titles and has grown substantially in the past year. PANZA would particularly like to thank Auckland poet, editor and novelist Alistair Paterson, Wellington poet/publisher Mark Pirie, Wellington publisher Roger Steele, Cecilia Johnson and the late New Zealand anthologist, poet and memoirist Harvey McQueen for their sizeable contributions to the fast-growing collection.
A full list of donations is listed in each issue of Poetry Notes, the PANZA newsletter.
