NorthWrite 2012 is a writing festival organised by the Northland branch of the New Zealand Society of Authors, taking place in Whangarei 7-9 September 2012.
Workshops will take place at People Potential Campus, Keyte Street, Whangarei.
Evening events and dinners will take place at the Kingsgate Hotel, Riverside Drive, Whangarei.
The festival includes award-winning and top-selling authors, illustrators and artists from New Zealand and Australia who will address the theme “The Business of Writing” from various perspectives and experiences.
All are welcome — writers, whether experienced or just starting out; illustrators and other visual artists; and anyone who enjoys a good story in any form. Discussions and workshops will appeal to writers across genres and with different personal and professional goals.
From historical fiction writer Deborah Challinor to poet Paula Green, from journalist Joe Bennett to illustrator Fifi Colston, this conference includes something for everyone. The full programme of workshops includes the basics of writing (from grammar to self-editing to preparing your manuscript for publication), performance and delivery, marketing and social media, illustration and picture book, non-fiction and poetry, historical fiction and children’s literature.
For more information about workshops, presenters, discussions, and two special evening events - the opening dinner on Friday 7 Sept with invited guest authors and illustrators and the Saturday 8 Sept event 'An Evening with Deborah Challinor' - please view our website and contact us.
