Stories on the Go

We are back!

Stories on the Go is a curated and ever-changing collection of stories so you can get your daily dose of words and storytelling. Find a QR code on a bus stop, scan it and read a short piece in English or Te Reo written by a New Zealand author. You can read it on the go or bookmark it for later.

You will find book extracts, poetry, flash fiction, local history, book recommendations from wonderful librarians and even a recipe and the story behind it. We will introduce audio pieces and you can watch some cool book trailers as well. There’s a story for everyone!

We feature beloved New Zealand authors and young and upcoming literary stars!

Find us in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.

If you are a New Zealand publisher and want your books featured here, please send us a message at
