SunLive – Creative Conversation for Writers


If you’re an aspiring writer, you won’t want to miss the upcoming Tauranga Writers Roundtable on Sunday.

“Spreading the Word” brings together a publisher, bookseller, best-selling self-published author and library buyer to share their knowledge with local writers. This is the second of three Creative Conversations, organized by Tauranga Writers with financial support from Creative BOP.

“Writing a book is just the beginning for a writer,” says Carol Garden, secretary and author of Tauranga Writers.

“Many writers have no idea how publishing and selling books work. We wanted to bring together people who can share their wisdom on why certain books get picked and others don’t.

The panel includes Lynette Evans, Publishing Director of Scholastic NZ, Sheree Brown, Owner of Books A Plenty, Rachel Weston, Best-Selling Self-Published Author, and Michelle Sims of the Tauranga Libraries Content Team.

“It’s a tough market for New Zealand authors, and the more we know, the better chance we have of getting our work out to readers,” says Carol. “There are so many factors to consider. Creative conversations like this are a great opportunity for writers to gain insight.

Sharing Stories – Spreading the Word will be held at the Village Cinema, 17e Ave, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 24..
