In her third collection, Kerrin P. Sharpe writes about trespass and return, the
homelessness of flight, and anatomies both human and object. Her poems take the
form of oblique, sometimes tragic, always powerful vignettes. These are poems
that are brilliantly restless in time and place."
Kerrin P. Sharpe was born in Wellington but now lives in Christchurch where
she is a poet and a teacher of creative writing. She completed the Victoria
University Original Composition programme taught by Bill Manhire in 1976 and
has recently returned to writing as her family have grown up and left home.
Kerrin's poems have appeared in many journals, including Hue & Cry, JAAM,
the Listener, Poetry NZ, Sport, Takahe, Turbine and the Press, in Best NZ Poems
08, 09 and 10, and in The Best of the Best New Zealand Poems. In 2008 she was
awarded the New Zealand Post Creative Writing Teacher's Award from the
Institute of Modern Letters. She is currently Writer-in-Residence at St Andrews
College and teaches creative writing at the Hagley Writers' Institute.
