Due to heavy demand for the Writers in Schools programme, the budget for subsidised visits has now been fully allocated for 2017. The Book Council can still contact authors on your behalf and make any related arrangements but would need to invoice your school for the full cost of the visit. For local authors this cost is likely to be between $300 and $400 for a full day visit.
We have over 200 of Aotearoa’s best novelists, journalists, poets, playwrights, non-fiction writers, storytellers and illustrators registered as part of the Writers in Schools programme.
They span the length and breadth of the country, and our booking form matches your needs with a suitable guest.
