The NZ Book Festival has launched a new writing competition for NZ authors who are writing a book and wish to publish it independently. Click here for details.
The core sponsor for the competition is independent publishing business BigWords-Books. A long-time supporter of the NZ Book Festival, BigWords-Books owner Fiona Cole decided to run the competition as a way to give emerging indie authors the chance to get their dream of becoming a published author off to a great start, and to showcase the level of professionalism that can be achieved through the independent publishing route.
The winner receives an indie publishing prize pack of professional services required to turn their manuscript into a published book, valued at over $3,500 NZD. Click here for details.
