In 2014, Dunedin became a UNESCO City of Literature and a member of the wider Creative Communities Network. It’s all about connecting with readers through libraries, schools, bookshops, festivals, workshops, events, performances, exhibitions and more. We celebrate our wonderful writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, oral storytellers, playwrights, screenwriters and lyricists. Every fortnight on Otago Access Radio’s OARsome Morning Show, Write Spot takes a look at how our city is embracing its City of Literature status with Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature director Nicky Page.
