Travel from New Zealand may be off the cards for the moment, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hear from brilliant Antipodean writers. With the support of Creative New Zealand’s Global Wayfinding Programme, we’re delighted to partner with three major New Zealand literary festivals: Auckland Writers Festival, Verb Wellington and WORD Christchurch. The Directors of each Festival (Anne O’Brien, Claire Mabey and Rachael King) have hand-picked a standout writer from their recent programmes: Ruby Solly (Tōku Pāpā), Elizabeth Knox (The Absolute Book) and Mohamed Hassan (National Anthem) and will present a short interview with each.
