Mike Ladd - Invisible mending
Mike Ladd started writing and reading his poetry in Adelaide at the age of 17. His first book The Crack in the Crib was published in 1984 followed by eight collections of poetry and prose. He was the editor and host of the long-running ABC programme Poetica, which ran for 18 years. Ladd shares some of his poems and talks about poets and poetry traditions that influence his work. His latest collection is Invisible Mending, and Ladd is coming to Aotearoa for a Writers and Readers event as part of the NZ Festival 2018 in Wellington.
