The school year. We all know what to expect: the nits, the crush, the history lessons, and rainy-day lunchtimes. But what happens when you send a bunch of poets to school? They’ll loiter in corners and see between the lines, then give a crash course on how to play with poetic form . . . The makers of the best-selling Annuals now bring you original, sometimes rowdy poetry from Renee Liang, Victor Rodger, Amber Esau, Anahera Gildea, essa may ranapiri, Bill Manhire, Amy McDaid, Kotuku Titihuia Nuttall, Vanessa Mei Crofskey, Ben Brown, Ashleigh Young, James Brown, Dinah Hawken, Rata Gordon, Oscar Upperton, Nick Ascroft, Tim Upperton, Lynley Edmeades, Freya Daly Sadgrove, Sam Duckor-Jones, Nina Mingya Powles, and Jane Arthur.
