Angele Toomey Poetry

Kia ora, welcome

Thank you for finding my webpage amongst a cacophony of options. I am a Wellington based poet with things to say and words to write. Not every work is darkly gothic – there are moments when the sun manages to shine through. Recently I have been experimenting with different forms as well as my usual ‘flow of consciousness’ technique.

I hope you enjoy visiting my musings in progress and the stories behind my writing.

Copies of Harbour may be purchased from Made Marion Crafts, 166 Cuba Street Wellington (when Alert Levels allow)
