This week the 2020 issue of the New Zealand Poetry Yearbook hits shelves and libraries around the country.

 It's a compilation that tries to capture an snapshot of what's going on in this south pacific powerhouse of contemporary poetry. 

Johanna Emeney is the guest editor this year. She's expanded the definition of poetry this year to include spoken word and Instagram.

She thinks the new mediums poetry is creeping into in the digital age are exciting and she joins Jesse to explain why.
