Ayyy the teachers at #HowickCollege sent me another photo, of me onstage at #AWF18! Thanks! Please note that I found out less than 2 days later that the #releasedate for #TakeFlight has been pushed back a couple of weeks till August - but that’s still only 2 months away! #excitement #author #onstage #writer #festival
Earlier this year, we ran a competition for a superstar bookseller to attend the @aklwritersfest and the wonderful Jill from Paper Plus Oamaru was our winner. Here are some snaps she took during her trip, and she said “Thanks so much for the opportunity to attend the Auckland writers festival, what a great experience...I can’t thank you enough it was awesome. “

Guess what? There’s a new #GenerationIcarus #shortstory! Written especially for #AWF18, published in an anthology for the Schools Programme, this story went home with 6000 NZ high school students ... and now you can read it on #Wattpad! You’ll find it as a new bonus chapter inside the #AirBorn excerpt 😍 #Tui #origins #backstory
Sorry we’ve been away! It was such a busy week at Writers Festival here in Auckland. Did anyone get to any events? @aklwritersfest •

Celebrating The Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. 📖🖋 #TheOckhams #AWF18 📚 #50thAnniversary
After two days of being basically dead to the world post-#awf18, I have emerged and there is coffee to be had. But almond milk mocha, to be clear. My munted self is not yet up to my usual all black, all the time. If I owe you an email or five I am sorry. Argh.

The Auckland Writers festival is such an inspiring event! I feel like going slightly mad as so many significant problems and heart touching issues have been unsealed during these very long three days. Writers from all over the world shared their moments of glory and loss, histories of their families and pages of love stories. Voices of some were almost breaking with tears, fragile as it is.
Many thanks to @aklwritersfest ❤️

I have been attending some wonderful sessions at the Auckland Writers Festival over the last few days. The most inspiring session I've attended here & at any writer's festival was with Dame Mary Anne Salmond DBE a New Zealand anthropologist, environmentalist and writer & the discussion of her book "Tears of Rangi: Experiments Across Worlds". It is a walk with ancestors, an observation in ways we converge & diverge, about truth telling, about clashes but also about resonance & how philosophies echo, about reconciling, & how we need to come up with new frameworks (ps I added my tweets FYI. I'm newish to twitter so thought I'd try it out here - read bottom up 😉) Event 60 #awf18

One can never quite grow up when it comes to the comforting indulgence of being read to😊  Thanks to @aklwritersfest for bringing us much celebrated Canadian Bengali writer Durga Chew Bose with an intimate reading of her essay.:"Since living alone "
An excerpt...
"Especially when living alone I’ve described to friends, is akin to waking up on a Saturday and realizing it’s Saturday. That flighty jolt. That made-up sense of repartee with time. Abundance felt from sitting upright in bed; the weight of one’s duvet vanquishing, by some means, all accountability."
