Judges announced for NZSA/Pindar Publishing Prize

The New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc.) in association with Pindar, Whitcoulls, The New Zealand Herald and Astra Print are delighted to announce the judges of the inaugural NZSA/Pindar Publishing Prize.

The three judges are Mary Egan, Managing Director of Pindar Publishing, Linda Herrick, Arts and Books Editor of the New Zealand Herald, and Graeme Lay, Auckland National Council Delegate, the New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc.).

The NZSA/Pindar Publishing Prize was the brainstorm of The New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc.) and Pindar Publishing. Maggie Tarver, CEO for The New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc.) comments, ‘We are delighted to be so generously sponsored by The NZ Herald, Whitcoulls and Astra Print, without whom this inaugural prize would not be possible’.

Tina Shaw, who administers the prize, stated ‘We have had an enormous amount of interest in the award so far. The website banner has received 1,493 hits since the award was launched in December and applications are already starting to flood in. I think the judges are going to have their work cut out for them.’

The deadline for applications is 30 March 2010. Writers must send a sample of writing, synopsis and application form to The New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc.).
