About The NZ Book Festival

It’s an exciting time for the literary world, with the resurgence of independent publishing bringing new voices to the fore, and allowing diversity in the publishing landscape.

The Book Festival originally began as the Auckland Independent Book Festival. It was held in 2014 at St Paul’s Church and hall in Devonport, North Shore, Auckland. Exhibitors came from all our New Zealand to showcase their books and literary services at the inaugral event.

In 2015 it’s was called the NZ Independent Book Festival and held again on the North Shore.

The 2016 event secured its place as the NZ Book Festival in the calendars of readers and writers. 90 exhibitors from as far away as Dunedin celebrated being a published indie author or an indie publisher at the Mt Eden War Memorial Hall on Dominion Road. The professional stands and books offered showcased the very best creative indie writers New Zealand has to offer. Visitor numbers exceeded both the 2014 & 2014 festivals.

The NZ Book Festival brings writers and readers together to share their love of literature.

For Readers

This is your chance to meet the writer behind the book. Chat with passionate Kiwi authors who’ve come from all over New Zealand. Browse through books that you may not find on mainstream bookstore shelves, and discover gems from a diverse range of genres – and authors!

For Writers

Are you a writer with a manuscript sitting in a drawer? Or has your story been rejected by traditional publishers and now you don’t know what to do next. Your next step is to come to the NZ Book Festival. You’ll get the opportunity to ask questions and get answers on how to publish your own e-book or print book. Let private New Zealand publishers share their knowledge with you. They’ll help you bring your dream of publishing to life.
