Join three Pōneke based poets in a discussion about aesthetics and authorship.

Chris Tse, Rangimarie Sophie Jolley, and Trinity Thompson-Browne will explore the role that their personal aesthetics play in their writing. Each will offer their own unique insight into the often-blurred line between author and artist while considering how we curate our own images online.
