Awards:Finalist for the Mary and Peter Biggs Award for Poetry - 2019 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards

'This collection speaks about beauty, activism, power and popular culture with compelling guile, a darkness, a deep understanding and sensuality. It dives through noir, whakamā and kitsch and emerges dripping with colour and liquor. There’s whakapapa, funk (in all its connotations) ... read more

Poetry comes in a myriad of forms and each appeals (or not) in its own way. It is sometimes difficult to say why you like a poem - why it appeals or resonates. It's more than the rhythm of the language on the page: sometimes it is the visual appeal of the words or phrases sparsely arrange... read more

I’m torn. I like classical books — I would list some names, but I also like to be liked, not discarded into irrelevance by the exhibition of insufferable pretentiousness. The opposite of a classic is an amateur collection of mixed-form creative works. Or, at least, they’re n... read more

Peter Singer says we are all equally valuable and I believe him.

‘Ginesthoi’, or ‘Let it be done’, believed to be the only surviving written word in the hand of Cleopatra VII, is the impetus for this series of poems by Evangeline Riddiford Graham. These tightly-woven poems scroll through history, empathising with the past and linger... read more

The only words generally accepted to be actually written by Cleopatra VII of Egypt herself are “ginesthoi” or “make it so”, signing off a series of tax exemptions for Publius Canidius, one of Mark Antony’s generals. Although the exemptions and privileges are unromantic, and ordinary enough fo... read more
