‘The Writing Life: Oral history into book the stories of twelve New Zealand authors’

Join Deborah Shepard to hear her account of the genesis of the book The Writing Life.

The book began with an oral history project for the New Zealand Society of Authors, that was funded by an Award in Oral History in 2015.

The history project was to record the stories of senior members of the New Zealand literary community:
- Joy Cowley
- Marilyn Duckworth
- Tessa Duder
- Chris Else
- Patricia Grace
- David Hill
- Witi Ihimaera
- Fiona Kidman
- Owen Marshall
- Vincent O’Sullivan
- Philip Temple, and
- Albert Wendt.

Deborah will outline the process from oral history into book and the surprises and discoveries she made along the way about the challenges and pleasures of the writing vocation from 12 of our most experienced and brilliant practitioners.
