NZ Young Writers Festival

17:00 pm
18:00 pm
26 Princes Street

The New Zealand Young Writers Festival covers a broad range of modes, from poets and playwrights to journalists and essayists. 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 sixth 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. Writers are encouraged to experiment with new ideas and ways of working in a fun and safe environment, leading to innovative material being presented during the festival and the confidence to undertake subsequent artistic risk taking.
