We are happy to announce that selected poems on the Best New Zealand Poems Website are now available as audio files. Each poem has been recorded by the poet themselves. The audio files correspond to poems selected in The Best of Best New Zealand Poems, an anthology now available from Victoria University Press, edited by Bill Manhire and Damien Wilkins. We have been working with the International Institute of Modern Letters to make these recordings accessible. We hope to have the remaining poems available by mid 2011. You will find audio for many well known New Zealand poets and we hope you enjoy being able to listen to each poem as well as read it.
