Find a Writer

We have over 200 of Aotearoa’s best novelists, journalists, poets, playwrights, non-fiction writers, storytellers and illustrators registered as part of the Writers in Schools programme.

We can arrange for your Writers in Schools visit to happen virtually. Just click "Skype" in response to "What would you like them to do?" and leave "Where is Your School?" blank. Then complete the rest of the form as normal. Our authors will talk with you directly about which platform will work best for everybody.

Our authors span the length and breadth of the country, and our booking form matches your needs with a suitable guest.

If you would like to request a particular author but can't see their name coming up, try unticking some of the boxes you have selected or just type their name into the "Date exceptions" box (we'll know what you mean).

  • Please, try and give a date range of at least two weeks
