Poetry Poster project launched at the Australia & New Zealand Festival of Literature & Arts in London last week.
This week we bring you a brand new poster.
Pānui Poetry Posters invites poets to send their work out into the world; allowing distinct Antipodean voices to be heard across the globe, to be shared and enjoyed by anyone, anywhere.
This project features the words of New Zealand poets on a series of uniquely designed posters, free for you to download and print.
New posters will be added over the next couple of weeks, so keep up to date here and via Facebook / Twitter / Instagram.
