The Emma Press has just launched Vivarium, a poetry pamphlet by Maarja Pärtna, translated from Estonian by Jayde Will.

Vivarium contains a selection of poems from Vivaarium, published by Elusamus in 2019. Vivarium was the first collection of poems about climate change to be published in Estonia, with Pärtna addressing topics of major environmental changes, loss of biodiversity and global warming by aligning them with themes of national trauma, examining the impact of Soviet rule on Estonian society.

The Emma Press is publishing Tiny Moons: A Year of Eating in Shanghai, a food memoir by award-winning poet Nina Mingya Powles, at the end of the month.

Tiny Moons is a collection of essays about food and belonging. Powles journeys between Wellington, Kota Kinabalu and Shanghai, tracing the constants in her life: eating and cooking, and the dishes that have come to define her. Through childhood snacks, family feasts, Shanghai street food and student dinners, she attempts to find a way back towards her Chinese-Malaysian heritage.
