A Made-up Place | Christchurch City Libraries | BiblioCommons

In Uncategorized on January 13, 2012 by mrsdillemma

Just found this title (A Made up place:New Zealand in young adult fiction) listed under the new non fiction purchased for the Christchurch City Libraries – I so badly want to read it! Qustions are bursting forward…

is fiction written in New Zealand written for international audiences?

if so, are our authors so reliant on overseas sales to live and work in a non existant realm?

Do we want this situation to exist – if we don’t we, as readers, must encourage our writers to write for kiwi kids living in a kiwi world!

Publish an international novel and then leak the NZ “amendments” online….

Just a thought (must now go and order a copy for my bookshelf)
