CUP author in the CBD

Many people will be familiar with Phantom Billstickers’ creative campaigns – sometimes they even give stuff away via their billboards, from drinks and food to creative writing. Phantom Billstickers are a staunch supporter of Aotearoa New Zealand writers and Canterbury University Press is always delighted when our authors’ works are chosen to bring the arts to the public in this way.

This month a story by Frankie McMillan, ‘Wrestling with the Octopus’, from her brilliant collection The Father of Octopus Wrestling, hit the streets in Christchurch. It’s one of four in Phantom Billstickers’ poetry poster campaign, and you can see Frankie’s poster at 323 Barbadoes St in the CBD. This link will show you exactly where, and also guide you to the other posters.
