I’m looking forward to the Kāpiti Writers Retreat next month: 26-28 February 2021 at El Rancho at Waikanae Beach. I’ve been to some of these before (previously under the Kahini umbrella) and found them a great way to generate new material, learn from some great writing teachers and socialise with other writers.

This year the workshops will be run by six excellent New Zealand writers – Brannavan Gnanalingam, Cassie Hart, Darusha Wehm, Pip Adam, Rob Hack and Rose Lu. There will be workshops in the mornings and writing discussions in the afternoons. The lovely Helen Lehndorf will be offering yoga for those who can struggle out of bed in time. Here’s the programme.
There are scholarships and volunteer opportunities available, but you’ll need to apply for those by 15 Jan.
