Join us for the 2020 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 established and award-winning New Zealand writers – Anahera Gildea, Catherine Chidgey, Chris Tse, Kerry Lane, Paddy Richardson and Pip Desmond – at the 2020 Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat. Each writer will teach morning workshops: in fiction, poetry, lyric essay, creative non-fiction, world building and editing. 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.
