NorthWrite 2020 Programme

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. The intention is to run most if not all workshops using the online Zoom platform. (Full instructions for using Zoom will be given to all participants prior to each event.) The October event may take a different format and we will keep you informed of this as we get closer to the date. The cost to attend each online workshop is $20pp for NZSA members and $25 (incl. GST) for non-members. This cost could increase if we return to face-to-face workshops.
