Books, Services, Training
KESWiN Publishing Ltd is based in Christchurch, New Zealand. Our mission is to inspire and document transformative journeys through non-fiction publications, publishing services, and writing training.
What is a transformative journey?
It is the process of major change in something or someone, especially in a way that makes it or them better.
Because we lived through the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes, we have invested in documenting the history of the region. As a result, we have published a number of print books which focus on the impact of the disasters. These are available through our online store, or from New Zealand retailers.
KESWiN Publishing Media, Insights, Articles
Our blog includes articles, reflections, images, and media releases focusing on the transformation of Christchurch and outlying towns. In addition, it provides you with a wealth of insights and articles on the heroic journey of non-fiction authorship. Furthermore, you can stay updated by subscribing to our newsletter. Also, you can like and follow us on Facebook.

Responders: Christchurch Earthquake
The New Zealand Response Teams are volunteer groups trained to professional standards as an emergency resource that can complement or support everyday emergency services if they are overwhelmed to their normal capabilities. The 22 February 2011 was more than just an every day emergency. All seventeen registered teams were deployed to come and help Christchurch in its time of need.
Responders tells the story of the NZ-RT Community’s first time in history where their skills were needed at one event, through private collection photographs and personal accounts of the teams and individuals involved.
