We're proud to be sponsoring Auckland Writers Festival again this year and the 'Literally Lorne' special event.

To celebrate, we are giving away 2 x double passes to one of this year's evening events. Pūrākau: Māori Myths Retold will see a line-up of Māori writers join forces for a night of storytelling on Thursday 16 May.

Imagine a sensual retelling of Tāne’s creation of Hine, Māui as a beleaguered sports star, or an Aotearoa where whakapapa is downloaded via app.

Join Whiti Hereaka(who edited Pūrākau with Witi Ihimaera), Kelly Joseph, Nic Low, Tina Makereti, Paula Morris, and Regan Taylor (reading for Vancouver-based David Geary) for an hour of mythic magic.


All you have to do is email your name and contact details to  - and be in to win!
