Tuesday Poem: A Podcast Interview with Helen Heath, Author of “Graft”
Helen Heath won the inaugural ScienceTeller Poetry Award in 2011 for her poem ‘Making Tea in the Universe’ and is currently undertaking a PhD in Modern Letters at Victoria University of Wellington; her research explores how science is represented in poetry. Widely published in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and the US, Graft is Helen’s debut poetry collection, with themes that include science, family connection, and fairytales.
