Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Friday 5th-Monday 8th October 2018
Whether you are writing short fiction, a novel, or a work of creative non-fiction there is always a way in which your story will want best to be told. Acclaimed New Zealand author Elizabeth Knox ('The Vintner's Luck'), will support you to find a clear direction for your story - and, along the way, you'll learn to become a shrewder, more flexible, confident and daring storyteller.
This creative writing retreat offers a period of intense concentration, outside your everyday life, with like-minded people who will read and discuss your work, as you read and discuss theirs - under the guidance of one of New Zealand's most experienced authors. Elizabeth Knox has written best-selling novels, science fiction, young adult (YA) fiction and is also a highly acclaimed creative non-fiction author.
The weekend will also allow for one-on-one 'story doctoring' sessions with Elizabeth. The aim of the weekend is that everyone who attends will leave with a clear feeling for how to proceed with confidence, energy, and renewed engagement.
