Bite Into The Bad Apple Poetry Special On Wellington Access Radio

Online queer literary journal bad apple has teamed up with Wellington Access Radio to create a spectacular and subversive showcase of some of Pōneke’s most amazing poets.

Broadcasting on Tuesday 19 December at 6pm, the programme features poets who have been published on bad apple as well as many who appear in the new anthology Spoiled Fruit: Queer Poetry from Aotearoa (edited by Damien Levi and Amber Esau).

The individual poems will also be added to the Wellington Access Radio playlist rotation and played in-between shows on an ongoing basis – a change from the usual use of a song to separate scheduled programmes.

Station Manager Pip Adam says, ‘It has been great having the talented folk from bad apple in the studio over the last few months. We’ve been blown away by the amazing poetry and the incredible readings the writers have recorded. We’re so excited to share this celebration of queer joy and art!’

Tune in to hear poems from Amelia Kirkness, Kate Aschoff, Rebecca Lester, Cadence Chung, Casey Lucas, Chris Girven, Jackson McCarthy, Kyra Lawler and Harold Coutts.

Tuesday 19 November
