The Writers Files
Welcome to the New Zealand Book Council’s Writers Files, the most comprehensive collection of information about New Zealand writers on the Internet.
At the heart of the Writers Files are 150 entries reprinted from the Oxford Companion to New Zealand Literature (Ed. Roger Robinson and Nelson Wattie, 1998).
The Book Council augments this resource by adding pages for authors not currently featured in the Companion, and by supplementing Companion entries with new information.
These additional entries and the additional information have been written by Kate Camp, Theresa Crewdson, Justine Clifton, Esme Gibbons, Sarah Hughes, Alexandra Keeble, Laura Kroetsch, Kirsten McDougall, Rachel O’Neill, Catherine Cradwick and other Book Council editors. Thanks to all of these contributors to this valuable resource.
Please check back regularly as the Writers Files are a growing resource and new author pages are added regularly.
