World of Words Exhibitors – 2016

Businesses in the business of writing, printing,  publishing and marketing.

Come and chat with the companies who’ll take your manuscript to the next level. They’ll advise on how to turn your manuscript into a saleable entity.


This is an exciting solution to the problem of major publishing houses merging or moving offshore making it harder to be traditionally published.


At the NZ Book Festival you have easy access to a range of small literary companies whose business it is to give you the ultimate joy of having your story published and enjoyed by your family, friends and the public.  Click on the logos below to be whisked away to their websites.

Freelance – Writers helping writers

Writers’ groups aren’t always to hand, which means too many writers don’t get the support and encouragement that comes from sharing. So where do you go to then to learn what you must know? Like the different kinds of writing and what they demand; how to get started and how to get published, and other dos and don’ts.
