New Zealand books at their best

Matt Philp

Matt’s feature-writing career began as a staff writer at the Listener, followed by several years as a senior writer for Metro, the Press and North & South. Now a freelancer, he writes on a diverse range of subjects for a wide set of publications. Matt has also authored books, including introductory essays on our national parks for Wild About New Zealand (with Gus Roxburgh) and Heart of the Mackenzie: The Glenmore Station Story. The Glenmore book, in particular, deepened his interest in the lives of New Zealand’s farming families, which came in handy on the Country Calendar book project.
