Tutor - poetry II (online)

​Lynn writes poetry, essays and fiction and has published a novel, Ghost Net, a novella, The Desert Road, and four collections of poetry – the latest of which is Common Land, a collection that combines short essays and poems. Lynn has taught creative writing for many years both in New Zealand and Australia. She has a particular interest in poetry and recently completed a PhD that explores the effects of repetition in her own work and in the poems of Jackie Kay and Kathleen Jamie. In 2013 Lynn was one of six writing fellows at Hawthornden Castle just outside of Edinburgh. Read some of Lynn’s work and find out more about her writing background on her website.

'I’m very pleased to be tutoring poetry at Whitireia again. It’s always exciting to help students find their particular doorways into the house of poetry and to be reminded of how exciting it is to wander around in that house.'
