Good New Zealand books and their authors are close to our heart and we’re out to declare our unreserved love.
The message is simple - a love and appreciation of books goes hand in hand with a love and appreciation of the authors who wrote them. We are sure that teachers, students, and other reading New Zealanders, will agree.
CLNZ is proud to take a lead role in connecting the dots between encouraging knowledge and creativity with the respect for authors. We whole-heartedly agree with our European colleagues that “a world that values knowledge and culture must value its creators”.
The CLNZ Cultural Fund is one way we are able to invest in the creative industry. Find out more about it here.
We operate with the objectives to protect writers and publishers’ ability to earn revenue from their works, support the creation of new works and their commercial success, and grow the number of works created and skills in the industry.
A vital part of successfully achieving these objectives is in CLNZ’s work informing and influencing future government policy, upholding the importance of creativity and the absolute right of authors and publishers to earn a living from their work.
