What Rhymes with Wairarapa? Poets hit the road.

It's National Poetry Day tomorrow - Friday July 27 - and normally I'd be working at Rona Gallery trying to get someone to buy a book of poetry. Tomorrow is different. I'm part of the Wairarapa poetry roadshow called What Rhymes with Wairarapa? It should be a blast.

I'll be reading from The Tenderness of Light which is a chapbook written about our place near Martinborough published earlier this year. Come along if you're in the area. Carterton Library at 10, Masterton Library at 12.15, Wairarapa college at 2.05 and Aratoi in Bruce Street Masterton at 7 pm.

Oh and we're still looking for words that rhyme with Wairarapa on our Facebook page (thanks to those who have so generously contributed!) or you could pop some in the comments below. We hope to use them on the day... create a crazy rap ... or something!

Here's a start:


Bug zapper, faultline mapper, rapper, trapper, handicapper, army sapper, whippersnapper, wanna cuppa? how's your papa?
