Win a double pass to the Going West Writers Festival Opening Night
Metro has three double passes to give away for the 7pm, Friday 14 September event.
New Zealand’s leading authors, poets, playwrights and musicians offer audiences a fortnight of fresh ideas, future-thinking, language and laughter at the 23rd Going West Writers Festival 1-16 September.
The Festival Weekend’s Opening Night, voted By Metro as Best in Auckland last year, features the first New Zealand performance by Tū, the multimedia collaboration of musician Moana Maniapoto and electronic music producer Paddy Free, award-winning novelist Paula Morris and acclaimed West Auckland poet Serie Barford.
Festival Programme Director Nicola Strawbridge says this year’s opening night line-up will be every bit as wonderful as last year’s acclaimed, sellout, event.
