Explore NZSA’s Podcast Library

Have you listened to any of NZSA’s two podcast series?

The NZSA Oral History Podcast Series is hosted by our own Karyn Hay, Kiwi broadcaster, NZSA member and author, and takes audio from our author oral history archives. Authors relate their stories of involvement with NZSA, chat about other writers of their generation, and describe their work advocating for authors rights.

In NZSA Live! we share audio recorded at a variety of New Zealand Society of Authors events from Janet Frame Memorial Addresses to National Writers Forum workshops.

All the episodes are on our website, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts (NZ Society of Authors).
