Started in the early 1970’s by writers including Keith Sinclair, C K Stead, Maurice Shadbolt and Maurice Gee, Auckland is the largest NZSA branch. Through our meetings and events the Auckland branch connects authors in all stages of their writing career. Each month we host a guest speaker and all members are welcome to attend. Follow our Facebook page to keep up-to-date with our events and news.


Auckland meets on the first Friday of each month (except January) at 6.15pm, AUT Tower – cnr Rutland and Wakefield Street, Auckland – 12th floor, room 1211. This event is held in AUT tower, courtesy of AUT and its Master of Creative Writing course.
