Pens and PJs NZSA youth writing group

Are you a young (age 18-29) author keen to share your work in a low-pressure environment? Join Pens & PJs on the first Wednesday of each month for some dedicated writing time, kōrero and kai! If you are Wellington based, feel free to show up at Wellington Writers’ Studio (upstairs at 145 Cuba Street) from 6:45pm, or register your attendance via email for the Zoom link.

We welcome writers of any background, experience, and genre, but we ask that you respect the kaupapa of Pens and PJs and Wellington Writers’ Studio (be kind, be respectful and follow the age limit of 18-29). If you are not a member of the NZSA, we encourage a gold coin koha at the door to cover venue and catering costs.

Upcoming dates:

Wednesday 3 April 2024, 7–9pm

What: See our NZSA calendar event for updated details every month, or follow us on Instagram @pensandpjs

Where: Wellington Writers’ Studio, upstairs at 145 Cuba Street (look out for the McLeavey Gallery sign)

Accessibility: Access to Wellington Writers’ Studio is up a steep flight of stairs. For those outside Wellington, or otherwise unable to access the venue, we offer Zoom access – email us for the link. Covid is still circulating, so as always we welcome anyone who chooses to wear a mask, and we ask that if you are unwell or isolating you stay home and stay safe.

Questions: If you have any queries, or would like the Zoom link, please email
