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.

The Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat is back from 24-26 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.

The Kāpiti Coast is the perfect place to ground yourself and your writing by the saltiness of the sea to the west, and the bird song from the canopy of native bush that covers its mountains to the east.

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. 

This year we’re delighted to host Coco Solid, Catherine Chidgey, Sinead Overbye, Gem Wilder, Rebecca Priestley and Therese Lloyd. Find out more about them, their workshops and what else is on over the weekend via the links below.

Scholarship and volunteer opportunities are available. You can also pay in instalments or pay the deposit now and the rest three weeks out. Register now via the link below. Please note that accommodation needs to be booked separately.
