Sweetman Podcast: Episode 241 - John Newton

An in-depth conversation with poet and academic John Newton. We talk about his brand new novel-in-verse, Escape Path Lighting. We talk through his love of music - including his sideline in songwriting and the band we both used to play in. We talk poetry and his critical history of New Zealand writing (he's one volume in on a three-book deep-dive). We talk about a life spent dedicated to writing, to finding poetry in various places in New Zealand and Australia. He is also currently in Dunedin for the Robert Burns Fellowship - so we talk through his lockdown experience in that city in that role.
