The Kiwi Diary 2020 is happening!

Click here to download our call for contributions - we’d love to have you involved!



Get an expert card shuffler, hand them pages from an old-school diary, some books of art, recipes and poetry, and lastly a selection of articles from an intelligent magazine - apply the riffle shuffle - and you have: The Kiwi Diary.

We apply an inspiration filter to the world's information overload for you, curating a mint selection of words and pictures that plant the seeds of beautiful and useful thoughts in the garden of your mind (yes, it's a garden.)  KD is your inspiration pill in book form! 

This transportable writers' retreat contains ample writing space, while each 2-page spread is adorned with articles, recipes, poetry, good-living tips, photography, illustrations and original art from over 60 contributors, so that you can enjoy the latest fruits of kiwi creativity each year.

Huge thanks to Sarah Weidig and Lou Horner for their amazing graphic design skills - there would be no Kiwi Diary without them!

The Kiwi Diary showcases our people, landscape, heritage and stories, and supports homegrown ideas, while becoming a treasured, personalised keepsake of the year.
