Do you have a story you’re burning to tell but don’t know how to tackle it? Whether fiction, memoir or narrative based non-fiction, you’ll learn how to centre a story around a point of view character, tying plot, character and theme together to create a unified whole.

Day One will be all about exploring structure, character and voice through writing exercises.

Day Two will workshop the ideas developed in Day One, and provide the steps needed to carry the project forwards to a successful conclusion.

We use two spaces at the Waikanae Baptist Church, both are warm and naturally lit. The first is the ground floor meeting room, with a separate open plan dining area, with access to a garden area. If this is unavailable, we use the upstairs meeting room which a modern, well lit self-contained space.


The venue has a ramp to enter the building and an accessible toilet.
The dining area is a reasonable distance from the meeting room but food can be brought to a participant who is unable to walk there.
The upstairs room is only accessibly by stairs. Wherever possible, we use the ground floor option.

Getting there

Please drive around the back of the venue and enter through the left hand door. The meeting room is the first room on the left.


Refreshments are provided as part of the session. If you have any dietary requirements please mention these when you register.
