Giving a voice to Auckland's migrant women
Do you like to read and write? Do you wish to connect with others in your community, but New Zealand is your adopted home and perhaps English is your second language? Would you like to practice and improve your creative writing skills with the support of a small group of established New Zealand women writers?
Come and join us!
Auckland Council’s Arts and Culture North Department, Albany Newcomers Network and Albany CoCo Incorporated, would like to invite women living in or around the Albany area who are new or established New Kiwis, to participate in an exciting new workshop series.
Over four weeks (one afternoon per week) between March 12th and April 14th, 2012, you will have the opportunity to develop your writing skills with professional guidance from an established female writer. These workshops will be led by playwright and poet, Renee Liang, along with award winning poet, Janet Charman, and novelist and graphic artist, Sarah Laing.
A variety of writing styles and interests will be catered for, including poetry, short story and essay writing.
Workshops will be held in English.
