Following in her mother’s footsteps, Marino Blank has been writing and publishing poetry for ten years, and was included in the 2014 Auckland University Press omnibus of Maori poetry He Puna Wai Korero. Marino's writing is evidence of an emerging Maori literary sensibility, referencing tikanga Maori, but very firmly anchored in the present – with a future-focused vision.
