Announcing the publication of Waiatarua: Reflections from an urban wetland

A moving book of new poems and photographs inspired by the Waiatarua Wetland Reserve in Auckland, New Zealand. The poems included in this collection celebrate some of the bird and plan life within the reserve but are also an homage to the creative inspiration of green open spaces everywhere. The photographs help place the reader within the reserve and serve to amplify the impact of the writing. And all the proceeds after cost will be donated back to the reserve.
