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)

Upcoming performances – covid strikes again!

Due to travel restrictions in place at the moment, my participation in the Quilted Bananas radio programme originally planned for Sunday 29 August need to be postponed until our Alert Levels drop. You can still find Wellington Community Access Radio at 106.1FM. I will let you know when my rescheduled date will be.

Please use reliable sources of information for updates on covid-19. For New Zealanders please go to Noho haumaru noho pai (stay safe, stay well).
