David Brelsford / Hot Chocolate
David Brelsford won the Hula Manu writing competition at the Brigham Young University Hawaii Campus in 1973.

In creating the poems in Jellyfish Dreams, the poet draws on her love of mythology as well as her own life’s experiences.
Brian H. Jones / Happy People

Jane Williams / Points of Recognition
'Jane Williams’s eye and ear are trained to human idiosyncrasy and foible, and to the endless possibilities that are held within a life.' - Sarah Day

Beware of assumptions about your elderly neighbours who came of age in the 1960s and 70s. Their thoughts just might surprise you.

To render these theatrical interludes in verse is of course an indulgence but also, it is hoped, a tribute and an invitation.

Jennifer Chrystie / Poetry Pond
These poems are shaped by the mundane and the extraordinary, all in rhythmic patterns and music that form a chorus from the first to the last poem.

For over ninety years, the mystery of Rennes-le-Château has sparked a wealth of speculation involving theories about lost treasure, societies, death cults, portals to other dimensions, sacred geometry and even aliens.
