Books from our Backyard is a book fair to bring together the fantastic scope of great writing being produced here in New Zealand and connect local readers with locally written books!

As an author, you have the opportunity to meet potential readers face to face, connect and introduce them to your work. We’re creating a fun, late-spring day out celebrating New Zealand books, and getting them into the hands of readers.

If you’re a writer, living in New Zealand, and have at least one book you’d like to sell, we'd love to have you and your books at our fair! * All genres are welcome: whether you write sci-fi, fantasy, horror, crime, romance, thriller, contemporary fiction, literary fiction, poetry, children’s, Young adult, non-fiction or any other genre, we’d love to see you and your books on display! * Your book does not have to be set in New Zealand, only you have to be set in New Zealand (even if it’s just for the present time) * Large press, small press and independently published books are all welcome!
