THE FESTIVAL BRINGS THE WORLD TO AUCKLAND.

Every year the Auckland Writers Festival stages over 140 public events, gathering together 160 of the world’s best writers and thinkers with over 24,000 festival goers and up to 6,000 young people to celebrate the world of books and ideas.

For the past 16 years the Festival has enriched the culture of Auckland and established itself as a major Australasian festival, characterised not only by the calibre of their guest authors but also by the enthusiasm and engagement of our audience and the warmth and welcome provided by Auckland as our setting.

The Festival brings the very best local and international writers of contemporary fiction and non-fiction, scientists, economists, poets, journalists and public intellectuals together with audiences to explore ideas, share stories and experience brilliant conversations. We celebrate curiosity and a sense of intellectual adventure and our programme is driven by the desire to spark ideas, to get us talking and to give us a time and place to engage with the world.

APRA AMCOS has been an Auckland Writers Festival supporter since 2009 - encouraging Songwriter Speaks sessions in both the main & School programmes.
