Issue 6 of broadsheet reviewed in Evergreen Review

Saturday, May 21, 2011 by Mark Pirie

Issue 6 of my poetry journal broadsheet (featuring Auckland poet, critic, editor of Poetry NZ and novelist Alistair Paterson) was reviewed in the spring issue of The Evergreen Review (No. 126) in America, edited by former Grove Press publisher Barney Rosset. The following notice about it appeared in Wellington's Dominion Post, Arts & Entertainment section, edited by Tom Cardy, 19 May 2011:

"The Evergreen Review is one of the most respected and influential literary magazines in the world. It was founded in 1957 by Barney Rosset, who succeeded in publishing the uncensored Lady Chatterley's Lover and the works of Henry Miller in the United States. Contributors have included Albert Camus, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Bertolt Brecht, Jean-Paul Sartre, Samuel Beckett, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and many more. So it's great to see the spring issue - it has existed online since 1998 - praising Wellington poetry magazine broadsheet edited by Mark Pirie. This is the equivalent of a Wellington musician being championed by Rolling Stone or a Wellington film-maker by Variety."
