Burst Kisses on the Actual Wind is a tapestry of surprising and shifting verse, focused on connection and displacement, the blurring between internal landscapes and longed for realities - we travel with the voice, invited into moments both cinematic and achingly tender. 


Courtney Sina Meredith is one of New Zealand’s most talented and influential authors – poet, playwright, slam artist and fiction writer – and a leading light in our Pasifika cultural community.

Courtney Sina Meredith is a distinguished author whose work delves into issues such as racism, sexism and poverty. Her debut poetry collection Brown Girls in Bright Red Lipstick (Beatnik, 2012) was followed by acclaimed short story collection Tail of the Taniwha (Beatnik, 2016), and historical feat The Adventures of Tupaia (Allen & Unwin, 2019).

Courtney has been awarded prestigious creative opportunities around the world. Heralding an era of niu leadership, her heart lies in giving voice to the contemporary experiences of Moana fafine. 

Her first poetry collection Brown Girls in Bright Red Lipstick is taught at schools and universities, and has been inspirational for many young women, people of colour and the LGBTQI community. 
Her latest collection Burst Kisses On The Actual Wind will find a large and eager audience. – Paula Morris
‘Everyone thinks you dream in foreign prose.
Everyone stands in front of you like a mirror.’
The poet is home, but still in the process of arriving.  Courtney Sina Meredith has grown a distinctive voice. Her arrangements are formally inventive. She surprises in ways that writers ought to. – Lloyd Jones
