A two day conference for writers aiming to publish September 17 & 18, University of Auckland
Tickets are on sale now for National Writers Forum workshops, masterclasses and panel discussions with leading writers and publishing industry experts.
Sessions for writers of all genres and levels of experience will cover a wide range of topics, from the nuts and bolts of writing a manuscript to copyright issues to how to get your book published. It’s a unique opportunity for authors to meet other writers, editors, festival directors, publishers and industry professionals from New Zealand and overseas.
In the inaugural NWF debate some of the sharpest minds in the country will battle through words and wit the proposition that New Zealand books need special treatment. Toby Manhire, Paula Morris, Michele A’Court and Leilani Tamu will be moderated by Te Radar.
