NZSA Writing Workshop with Mandy Hager

Sunday 25th October 2020

Two-hour workshop with award-winning author Mandy Hager.

Mandy Hager is a multi-award winning writer of fiction for young adults. In 2019 she was awarded the Margaret Mahy Medal for life-time achievement and a distinguished contribution to New Zealand’s literature for young people.

In this workshop, you will get the chance to learn more about and experiment with character, voice and story structure: Learn how to find your character’s unique voice, and how character, voice and theme are intrinsically intertwined.

The workshop will include a mix of instruction and writing exercises.

This is a unique opportunity to learn from one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed YA writers. Mandy is a trained teacher, with an Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts (Whitireia) and an MA in Creative Writing from Victoria University of Wellington. She also writes adult fiction, short stories, non-fiction, educational resources, blogs and articles, and currently tutors the Novel Course for Whitireia’s Creative Writing Programme.
