Join us for the 2019 Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat 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. Read about last year’s event here.
Kahini is delighted to host six established New Zealand writers–Brannavan Gnanalingam, James George, Lynn Jenner, Mandy Hager, Vana Manasiadis and Whiti Hereaka–at the 2019 Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat. Each writer will teach morning workshops: in fiction, poetry, mixed genre, manuscript development and dialogue. In the afternoons they will lead discussions on topics pertinent to craft and literature in Aotearoa. (Read descriptions of the workshops, afternoon discussions and teachers below.)
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. Please contact Kirsten at [email protected] for more information. Find out more or Register for the Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat!
