What’s true? What’s false? See if you can spot the lie.
None of these are lies.
Nice try, but you haven’t found the lie.
Rata has poems published in ‘Sport’, ‘Atlanta Review’, ‘Brief’, and ‘Geometry’.
Not a lie! This is true.
She lives on Waiheke Island.
Sorry. This is true.
Rata is a poet, creative facilitator, and dance and singing teacher.
False! Rata does teach dance but not singing.
