We’re used to people slagging off Auckland when actually we live in a complex city couched in a landscape of unbelievable beauty. Our writers have historically limned a city we are fumblingly getting to love.

Stephanie Johnson’s work explores the city of her birth, from 19th-century Parnell in "Belief" to 1960s Manukau in "Music from a Distant Room".

Derek Hansen brings to life the fetid landscape of 1950s Ponsonby in "Remember Me".

Paula Morris explores contemporary Maori, Polynesian, and Asian Auckland in "Queen of Beauty" and "Hibiscus Coast". If a city is a state of mind, how best is it evoked?

Chair: Paula Green.
