  • Process and Play Day 2
    July 24, 2022
    10:00 am - 3:00 pm

This two-day workshop will aim to hone in on the places where creativity comes from within ourselves, including sensory experiences, memories, and the various forms of inspiration we carry with us.

We will focus on process rather than product, getting back to what first drove us to create before we developed an inner critic or began wrestling with the demons of self-doubt. We will use hands-on activities, interactive activities, and readings to generate work, which could take the form of poetry, short prose forms, or components of a longer work.

Please bring a piece of writing that inspires you: a favourite poem, passage from a novel, or anything that moves and inspires you each time you return to it.

Limit of 12 participants. Please fill out this form to apply for a scholarship

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.
