    Gina Cole | Black Ice Matter

    Gina Cole’s debut book of short stories Black Ice Matter, will be officially launched by Selina Tusitala Marsh, who described Gina’s writing as, “Fijian-infused, queer-inflected, and crafted with legal precision.”



    Black Ice Matter is a collection of short stories exploring the connections between extremes of heat and cold. Sometimes this is spatial or geographical; sometimes it is metaphorical. Sometimes it involves juxtapositions of time; sometimes heat appears where only ice is expected.



    The book launch will be at Tautai and Artspace Friday 9 September, 6pm, level 1, 300 Karangahape Rd, Auckland.



    Gina Cole (Fijian, Scottish, Welsh) is a barrister specialising in family law and a writer. She has a Masters of Creative Writing from the University of Auckland and has had her writing published in takahē, JAAM, Express Magazine, Span and Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust Newsletter. She won the Alternative Bindings, Auckland Pride Festival creative writing competition in 2014 with her poem ‘Airport Aubade’, and she had a short story highly commended in the 2013 BNZ Literary Awards – Katherine Mansfield Award.
