We welcome writers, illustrators, librarians, teachers, parents, grandparents and wider whānau, and members of the public as members of Storylines – and as members of the community that supports and celebrates New Zealand children’s writers and illustrators, the development of a strong literary tradition, and love of literature among New Zealand children and their adults.

By paying the nominal Storylines membership fee you show your support for a strong New Zealand voice in children’s literature, you join a vibrant children’s literature community – and you support the ongoing development of a children’s literature tradition that ensures that New Zealand children grow up reading and hearing stories from this country told in New Zealand vernacular.

You become part of an active community of children's literature enthusiasts and experts and seek to share your love of literature (particularly New Zealand children’s literature), be involved, network, share information, and support the aims and objectives of the Storylines Trust.
