Making the sculptures

The Wellington Writers Walk is a project of the Wellington Branch of the New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN) Inc.

The Wellington Writers Walk quotations are a combination of bold concrete plaques and more subtle 'benchmarks' with metal text inlaid into existing timber structures. The plaques have been designed by the internationally renowned typographer Catherine Griffiths and the benchmarks, three of them seats, by award-winning Wellington architect Fiona Christeller.

The Wellington Writers Walk committee is grateful to Catherine Griffiths and Fiona Christeller for their inspiration and work as designers and for the work of their production and installation teams in realising the vision for the walk. Many sponsors and volunteers have contributed their time, expertise and money to allow the Wellington Writers Walk to enhance our picturesque harbour environment.
