More free PNZ downloads for Christmas

Nicholas Reid, ed: Poetry NZ 46 (2013)

As a special Christmas treat, and also by way of an apology for letting a whole year go by without an issue of Poetry New Zealand, we've decided to make the complete pdf files of issues 46, 47, 48, and 49 available as free downloads from the Poetry NZ website.

We'd been selling them previously for $NZ 10 each, but from now on all four of them (as well as issue 50) will be free to a good home. Look near the top of the left margin of the each issue's webpage. You'll see, in little red letters: "Free PDF download." Click there.

As part of the changes necessitated by the shift to our new publisher, Massey University Press, we will be selling each annual issue separately in future, and no longer as part of a one or two-year subscription. Our existing obligations under the old subscriptions policy will, of course, be fulfilled, but Poetry New Zealand Yearbook will henceforth be sold through the MUP website, as well (of course) as in good bookshops everywhere. You can still buy copies of the current issue through the Poetry NZ website, but from now on the payments will go through MUP.

This offer of the free downloads is also meant as a thank you to all those valiant subscribers who’ve kept the magazine afloat for so many years. It goes without saying that we’re still going to need your support to continue, but it now seems more practical to market each issue as a discrete item, rather than as part of a package.
