Robert Sullivan Read about Robert Sullivan’s poem engraved on the steps of the staires in front ofThe Auckland Ciity Libraries at Lorne Street.
As a significant NZ poet (Ngapuhi, Kai Tahu) and former Auckland central city librarian, Sullivan was the obvious choice to undertake a commissioned piece of poetry to reflect the area’s vibrant history.
Sullivan has had seven poetry collections published and won several New Zealand awards for his children’s writing and editing.
He was a poetry finalist in this year’s New Zealand Post Book Awards for editing Mauri Ola, the follow-up anthology to the successful Whetu Moana: Contemporary Polynesian Poems in English.
He is currently head of the Manukau Institute of Technology’s new School of Creative Writing.
