Don’t miss your opportunity to nominate your pick of our finest writers for the 2017 Prime Minister’s Awards for Literary Achievement.

Every year New Zealanders are invited to nominate writers who have made a significant contribution to New Zealand literature in the categories of non-fiction, poetry or fiction. $60,000 is awarded in each genre.

New Zealand writers are also able to nominate themselves for the awards.

The nominations are assessed by an expert literary panel and recommendations forwarded to the Arts Council of Creative New Zealand for approval, with the awards presented in a formal ceremony.

In 2016, Marilyn Duckworth received the award for Fiction, David Eggleton for Poetry and Atholl Anderson for Non-Fiction.

See the full list of winners.
Nominations close on Friday, 7 April at 5pm.

    Hello Poetry Shelf

    Just want to let you know that I am going to unsubscribe, not because I do not like the content, but because we are going away on a cycling adventure and need to limit my emails to essential one only.

    Will catch you again in a year’s time.

    Cheers Kel
