Our History

“The Whanganui Literary Festival was established by New Zealand author, Joan Rosier-Jones. “

It began in 2006 and ran again in 2007.  Since then, it has been run as a biennial event. 

In 2006 the Festival began with local authors, while the 2007 event introduced a number of authors from around the country.

That has been the focus ever since. The literary scene in New Zealand is rich and varied. We will continue to show-case New Zealand authors.
