‘Going from writing aspirational poems about a future where Pacific women are in charge, to my leadership role in at Tautai – the significance of that is not lost on me.’ From award-winning poetry to essays and children’s books, Courtney Sina Meredith has a vast body of work that spans genres, and has even been called ‘genre-bending’. Her bold, self-assured style of writing has attracted attention across Aotearoa and on the international stage. Courtney’s work delves into issues such as racism, sexism and poverty and draws on her Samoan roots. In conversation with literary luminary Jeremy Hansen. This event is part of the 2022 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
