About Us

THE WCBA
Te Mātā Pukapuka Tamariki o Whanganui-a-Tara. 

Our aim is to support New Zealand writers and illustrators of children's and young adult books and to bring visiting overseas writers to a Wellington audience. We host literary events in the Wellington area for all those with an enthusiasm for children's literature. In 2002, the association established the Jack Lasenby Award for writers; a biennal competition for adults and children from the Wellington region who write children's fiction.

The WCBA is only $20 a year to join.
