Sydney Writers Festival - work to be done by Creative NZ?
I see and hear quite a few NZ'ers amongst the audiences which is more than one can say for NZ authors on stage! The only link with NZ authorship I can see in the whole Festival are the sister-authors of Goodbye Sarajevo, one of whom lives in Auckland, but of course the book is published in the UK by Bloomsbury so hardly a NZ title.
Perhaps Creative New Zealand should be lobbying the SWF for a bit more NZ author representation, after all every literary Festival I go to in NZ has Aussie authors present.
