Longlisted for the Magpie Award for Poetry

Inspired by contemporary English language haiku, accomplished poet, Jude Neale, explores ordinary objects through both poetry and photography in her new collection, Inside the Pearl. These photos and haiku-like poems capture moments and memories – recording and archiving, the history and treasures of Joy Kogawa House in Vancouver, Canada. The images range from colourful household items to grainy, black and white snapshots of times past, reminders of a most difficult period in Japanese Canadian history that still resonate today.
