The ANZL is a community of writers from New Zealand – authors of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction.
On our site you’ll find current biographical information for over 100 writers – our ANZL Members – and a range of in-depth features about the diverse strands of contemporary New Zealand literature, as well as extended interviews, reports and a monthly conversation/ kōrero that crosses oceans.
Our group of ANZL Fellows are represented by an appreciation by another writer – and we’ll be adding comprehensive bibliographic information for them very soon.
If you’d like an alert when we post new features to the site, please sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page. Festival directors and industry representatives can view our Author Showcase E-book here.
