Well done, chook!

Christchurch poet Victoria Broome  has just been named on the shortlist for the Kathleen Grattan Award for her collection Big Red Engine.

You can get a taste of her work at a book launch at South Library this Saturday: Broome is one of The Poetry Chooks, who will debut Flap: The Chook Book 2 in the Sydenham Room at South Library.

Fiona Farrell will speak and I’m sure Victoria, along with  Catherine Fitchett, Barbara McCartney and Christina Stachurski, will  delight and entertain. Well done, chook!

    Congratulations to Victoria–a very well-deserved achievement. And I believe her poems will appeal to many Christchurch readers. I will keep my fingers crossed that she is indeed the next Kathleen Grattan winner as that means her collection will be published “for sure.”
