THE KĀPITI WRITERS’ RETREAT

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.

We look forward to seeing everyone in February 2023 for our three-day gathering for writers which encompasses intensive morning workshops, lively discussions and space to write, relax and engage with topics critical to your work.

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. 

Scholarship and volunteer opportunities are available.

WRITE TOGETHER

Write Together is a journal as interested in process as product. Read our latest issue or join up to write new work with another writer in Aotearoa.
