Looking Forward: Hoopla Series


  1. 1.
    a game in which rings are thrown from behind a line in an attempt to encircle one of several prizes.
  2. 2.
    North American / informal
    unnecessary fuss surrounding something.
    “I really didn’t know what the hoopla was all about”
    3.3. An excellent series of poetry released by local Wellington publisher Makaro Press each year. 

This year the series is releasing three pastel poetry collections, from Helen Jacobs, Harvey Molloy, and Ish Doney.

Each collection in the series is $25, and by releasing three books at once, the series aims to entice people to buy and read poetry books through the quality of the poets, the vibrant design, and clear narrative of theme that is grown through releasing a series.

Join Makaro Press and the poets for the Wellington launch and reading at Fringe Bar on Sunday the 17th March,  at 4:00 pm.
