PAU Undergraduate Launches Poetry Book

A final year Theology student at the Pacific Adventist University, Wardley Barry-Igivisa, celebrated the launching of his poetry book called ABC Dreams.

Wardley’s passion for writing was sparked in 2003, when he was in Grade 5 attending Malaguna Primary School, in East New Britain.

The launching of the book was staged at the Pacific Adventist University’s dining hall on Monday.

Wardley Barry-Igivisa, 28, from Eastern Highlands ventured into poetry writing very early in his during primary school. Speaking to EMTV News, Barry explained it all started during an event in school when he heard a poem rhyming the words book and look.

Wardley will be graduating from the Pacific Adventist University with a Bachelor’s degree in Theology in December this year. His poetry book, ABC Dreams was inspired by many people he met throughout the years. One notable inspiration Wardley acknowledges is his girlfriend. The ABC Dreams author met his girlfriend in 2011 and said she has since been an inspiration to many of the poems he has written.

ABC Dreams was compiled through many years prior to the publication in July this year.

Wardley was joined by many on Monday to celebrate the successful publishing of ABC Dreams, which he says is only the first of many more still to come.

Also in attendance was Wardley’s Grade 4 teacher, Elizabeth Collin, and classmate, Mariah Liu, who spoke of Wardley very proudly at the reception.

Dr. Jillian Thielle, of PAU’s Theology Department, was instrumental during Wardley’s progress in compiling the book. Through the School of Theology, Wardley was able to publish ABC Dreams through Australian based publisher, Pukpuk Publication and printed in South Carolina in the United States.
