Jenny Bornholdt has the remarkable capacity to draw the subtlest insights out of the most everyday details. Her poetry is marked by the fine-grained quality of her noticing, by her sprightly wit, and by the generous access she provides to very precise states of feeling. How does she achieve all this?
Jenny Bornholdt is one of the outstanding New Zealand poets of her generation, with a string of deeply loved collections and selections.
Jenny will be discussing her work with actor, writer and audio describer Clare Marcie.
