Auckland Writers Festival

15 May - 20 May

Aotea Centre, Aotea Square

Auckland Live is a proud silver level sponsor of the Auckland Writers Festival and we take pride in hosting thousands of lovers of books, ideas and thinkers in Aotea Centre each year in May.

The Auckland Writers Festival offers audiences the opportunity to see and hear from the very best local and international writers of contemporary fiction and non-fiction, scientists, economists, poets, journalists and public intellectuals. Audiences will be enriched by innovative thinking, challenged by new ideas and inspired to discover more about our world. 

Outside in Aotea Centre foyers and Box Café and Bar, audiences and authors get to rub shoulders, and there is never a shortage of great conversations.This year there are more options than ever to sustain you through the festival at BOX Café and Bar in Aotea Centre and at the Heartland Festival Room in Aotea Square.
