New Zealand Festival Writers Week

Part of the New Zealand International Arts Festival. Aims to present a selection of top writers from New Zealand and around the world. Closely resembles literary events such as the Melbourne Writers’ Festival, and focuses on fiction, poetry and serious non-fiction (history, biography etc). Approximately 16 international writers and many New Zealand writers participate in six days of stimulating and thought-provoking panels, readings, and lectures, along with book launches and other functions. Participants are selected by a committee made up of writers and others involved in the book trade. Check website closer to event to confirm details.
