About the 2017 Storylines Festival Tour

In 2017, Storylines built on its strong and respected role in the New Zealand literary community as an advocate and promoter of New Zealand children’s literature with a revamped and re-focused programme. The new Storylines National Festival Story Tour celebrates and promotes writers and illustrators of New Zealand children’s literature, and extends Storylines’ reach to more metropolitan and regional centres.

The new-look Storylines National Festival Story Tour held during 2017 was a resounding success with more than 19,000 children and teens from Northland to Invercargill visited by leading authors and illustrators.

The 2017 Storylines National Festival Story Tour was supported by Creative New Zealand, Foundation North, New Zealand Book Council and other funders. It took teams of 4 or 5 writers and illustrators to tour the Northland, South Auckland/Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Manwatu, Nelson/Blenheim and Queenstown/Invercargill regions. Each team spent five days touring the region, visiting from 22 to 51 schools, early education centres and libraries.
Evening events for adults were also included.
Writers included award-winners Melinda Syzmanik, Tim Tipene, David Hill, Stacy Gregg, Darryn Joseph, Des Hunt and Fifi Colston; among the illustrators were Gavin Bishop, Scott Tulloch and Vasanti Unka.
Wonderful feedback has been received from schools across the country.
Please support our screening of The Changeover to help raise funds for the 2018 Storylines National Festival Story Tour.
