Be in to WIN a trip to the Auckland Writers Festival 2021
We know that booksellers are some of the hardest working folk around. You do an amazing job every day, and after the curveball that was 2020, we think you deserve a break.
We want to send one superstar bookseller to the 2021 Auckland Writers Festival – one of the highlights of the NZ literary scene. You could attend events with* Neil Gaiman, Marilynne Robinson, Amanda Palmer, Michael Robotham, Shaun Tan or Chloe Gong – just to name a few!
*Some authors will be appearing via Zoom. Please check the festival programme for more details.
This awesome prize includes:
- return flights to Auckland
- two nights (May 14 and 15) at the FIVE STAR SkyCity Hotel (the same hotel as the writers!)
- a 10 session pass to soak up a whole range of brilliant Festival authors
- a book pack of titles by Hachette authors attending the Festival
- a complimentary mask

Jill from Paper Plus Oamaru
Thanks so much for the opportunity to attend the Auckland Writers Festival, what a great experience...I can’t thank you enough, it was awesome.
Timothy from Whitcoulls Hornby:
It was everything I dreamed it would be and more. Meeting the likes of Roxane Gay, Teju Cole and Rupi Kaur was so incredibly inspiring for me. The atmosphere of the crowd was so cool - so many passionate readers, writers and lovers of the written word. It's something I'm going to continue to attend every year!
Entry is open to all NZ bookstore employees. There is no limit to the number of nominations you can submit, so make sure you nominate all your best staff and colleagues. If you are a superstar, ask someone else to nominate you!
