New Zealand Young Writers Festival


The New Zealand Young Writers Festival (NZYWF) is an annual four-day programme of workshops, panel discussions and performances by and for young writers. It covers a broad range of modes, from poets and playwrights to journalists and essayists (and more). It's an opportunity for writers to connect and collaborate, and for many an entree into the world of literary festivals and events both here and overseas. This year’s festival is the fifth and will offer young people enthused by the written word the opportunity to develop their thinking and practice as both creators and consumers of literature.
