NorthWrite 2020: Workshop Series

All of us at NorthWrite hope that you and your bubble are doing well in these strange times. We had a programme for NorthWrite 2020 all ready to launch at Tūhono Kerikeri! in March but given the current situation we have had to revise it somewhat. We have been working hard behind the scenes to do that and are thrilled with the line up we have for you.

The NZ Society of Authors, Northland Branch is pleased to announce the programme for the NorthWrite 2020: Workshop Series. We are offering four workshops in May, July, August and November, as well as an event in October to be run in conjunction with Book Week. Given the current situation and the remote nature of Northland and its writers, the intention is to run most if not all workshops using the online Zoom platform to enable as many Northland writers as possible to attend. The October event may take a different format and we will keep you informed of this as we get closer to the date. Registrations for the workshops will open shortly and the cost to attend each online workshop is $20pp (incl. GST). This cost could increase if we return to face-to-face workshops.

Note: Zoom is an easy to use video-conferencing platform and full instructions on how to use it will be given to those who register.

The workshop line-up:

16 May (1.00 – 3.30pm)
Presenter: Wendy Wickens
Topic: Blogging for Writers

18 July (1.00 – 3.30pm)
Presenter: Caroline Barron

We will keep you informed of updates as they come to hand. Presenter bios and workshop descriptors will be added shortly.
