Alexandra Fraser, Michael Giacon, Lincoln Jaques, Denise O’Hagan, Maris O'Rourke and Gillian Roach – formed together as the Isthmus Poets in 2017. All live and work in Tamaki Makaurau Auckland. They describe the Auckland isthmus as their home and stomping ground, their image-mine, their heart.
From the South Island New Zealand Poet Laureate David Eggleton a writer of Palagi, Rotuman and Tongan descent based in Dunedin. Vaughan Rapatahana recently wrote about him for Jacket2. He noted Eggleton's work is best heard and seen performed, because Eggleton traverses his verses with a swift tempo, and his speciality is the manner in which he usurps regular metre and produces a rhythm of his own.
