'''Sylvia Constance Ashton-Warner''' {{post-nominals|country=NZL|MBE}} (17 December 1908 – 28 April 1984) was a [[New Zealand]] [[writer]], [[poet]] and [[educator]].

Ashton-Warner was born on 17 December 1908, in [[Stratford, New Zealand]]. She spent many years teaching [[Māori people|Māori]] children, using stimulating  and often pioneering techniques which she wrote about in her 1963 treatise ''Teacher'' and in the various volumes of her autobiography. Her success derived from a commitment to "releasing the native imagery and using it for working material" and her belief that communication must produce a mutual response in order to affect a lasting change. As a novelist, she produced several works mostly centred around strong female characters. Her novel ''Spinster'' (1958) was made into the 1961 film ''[[Two Loves]]'' (also known as ''The Spinster'') starring [[Shirley MacLaine]]. She was appointed a [[Member of the Order of the British Empire]] for services to education and literature in the [[1982 Birthday Honours|1982 Queen's Birthday Honours]].<ref>[ ''London Gazette'' (supplement), No. 49010, 11 June 1982]. Retrieved 5 May 2013.</ref>

Ashton-Warner died on 28 April 1984, in Tauranga.  Her life story was adapted for the 1985 [[biographical film]] ''Sylvia'', based on her work and writings,
