The Money Nerve

Feeling financially tapped, emotionally trapped? Do you feel the heat rise in you every time you pay bills or feel the aggravation of watching a loved one waste money? Is your money nerve being pinched? This book is at the nexus of your heart and your wallet, helping you navigate your emotional response to money. This dynamic approach…

South Auckland writers were invited into the Papakura Museum to see if they could find out. These stories and poems of love, loss, triumph, new beginnings and changing times include actual events and memories as well as fiction. All are inspired by real taonga (treasures) in the museum.

Aotearoa New Zealand has been peopled by waves of migrants over the land's last millennium. Recurring themes in History Write Now are the fears, hopes and dreams of all migrants - some told from the perspective of the few but precious possessions brought with them. Papakura and South Auckland form the backdrop but not always - these 'flights of fancy' have sometimes taken off to land elsewhere.

The 18 writers in this publication, many of whom are new to writing, were selected from the 2015 History Write Now project. Their stories and poems were edited by author James George, who was the project's writing coach and mentor.
