Abstract

Alistair Paterson has been a central figure in New Zealand poetry for many decades, as poet, editor and mentor. In late 2014, as part of a research project which involved conversations with senior poets about how creativity emerges, how it circulates, and what people do with this capacity, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Canberra Jen Webb and Alistair met in Alistair’s Auckland home to talk about poetry and his own practice.
