Bryony was brought up in England and studied moral sciences and music at Cambridge University. She came to New Zealand in 1975 and have lived in Auckland ever since. She has written orchestral music, theatre music, choral music, songs and novels as well as poetry. She has had poems published in poetry magazines in UK, USA, Australia and NZ and on line. Her Right Angle poem was the title poem of the University of the South Pacific’s anthology of maths poems. This year two of her poems received awards in the PoetryBox competition for Halloween poems in the UK.
She will be releasing her 15th collection of poetry, Howling at the Moon!
(Remember that time you stubled across a random poetry night on K’ Rd and you stopped in to have a drink and you watched till the end and the poetry was cool but there was that one lady who read the hilarious yet profound thing that you couldn’t stop talking about and you brought it up to your mates at the office the next day and they were like “yeah! I know the lady you’re talking about she is incredible!!!” and then you look her up and she’s pretty famous and has done some really cool things. That’s Bryony Jagger)
