Testimonials

Poems have been carefully selected to produce a meaningful flow throughout the anthology, creating a cohesive, assured collection. While many of the haiku feature the natural world, which is ever present in New Zealand, there are also many accomplished senryu. The wonderfully quirky New Zealand sense of humour surfaces often in this anthology – Vanessa Proctor, reviewing for Haiku Oz. Read the full review here.

Without doubt, the poets featured here have resourcefully adapted haiku to their own circumstances — those unique and those universal – Paul Miller, reviewing for Modern Haiku

Aside from the wonderful poetry in the book, the hard copy itself is very nicely done and has a real ‘quality’ feel to it – Sian Williams

Number Eight Wire is a splendid effort … Very thorough in coverage of the last decade and all my favourites are there – Tony Beyer
