WHAT IS THE NWF?
The National Writers’ Forum is a conference for people who write books: fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, poetry, plays and digital media.

The forum reports on the current New Zealand writing and publishing environment and explores the prospects for writers in the new democracy of the digital world.
