A hearty congratulations to Grace Taylor, who tonight won the 2nd Auckland Mayoral Writers grant.
The heartfelt and at times, hilarious ceremony, took place in the Whare Wananga on the 2nd floor of the Central City Library. 55 writers applied for this prestigious competition.
Coming 2nd equal was Professor Tony Watkins and our very own director, Louise Tu’u.
Thank you to Mayor Len Brown for initiating this award, Auckland Council and Auckland City Libraries for their respective implementation and hosting and the lovely audience who came to support and celebrate local writing talent.
