Designed for writers who want to build their portfolio of publications, Eleven Stories is a one-year, MFA-equivalent course and writing community, created to give you eleven short stories ready for publication.
We use a closed, private Facebook group as our central gathering place, which works really well thanks to the “Add File” feature for video and text-based craft lectures and readings.
By the end of next December you’ll have eleven new stories written, revised, and submitted for publication; have read or re-read over 90 works of the masters through 48 separate craft lectures; and know the exact literary journals seeking the kind of writing you’re doing–all while becoming the writer you’ve always wanted to be. Learn more!
Immerse yourself in writing and conversation this summer. There’s something for everyone–whether you’re new to writing, an established writer, or somewhere in-between.
Join us for the 2018 Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat on 23-25 February 2018 and renew and recharge your writing and your life.
The Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat is an immersive, two-day gathering for writers, happening on the Kāpiti Coast. The Retreat includes intensive morning workshops, lively afternoon discussions and space to write, relax and engage with topics critical to your work.
Kahini is delighted to host six established New Zealand writers–Airini Beautrais, Anahera Gildea, Pip Adam, Rajorshi Chakraborti, Queenie Rikihana-Hyland and Victor Rodger–at the 2018 Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat. Each writer will teach morning workshops: in fiction, poetry, memoir writing and mixed genre. In the afternoons they will lead discussions on topics pertinent to craft and literature in Aotearoa.
All writers are welcome, at whatever stage you are in your writing life. You’ll find community, encouragement, and a safe place in which to take artistic risks.
Full details about the programme and how to register available here. Early bird rates are available until 31 December 2017.
