Wellington Branch

Wellington branch is lively and engaged. Our 250-plus members range from renowned authors to aspiring writers, producing all kinds of work: non-fiction, literary through to speculative fiction, work for children and young adults, short stories, flash fiction, poetry and more. We enjoy our connection with the Wellington Writers Walk. Our region includes the Hutt Valley, Wairarapa and Kapiti Coast, and we welcome everyone who’s interested in writing and in our local writing community. We meet Monday evenings, every two months, as well as for Courage Day and our popular book auction and Christmas party.

Meeting venue

Our exciting new meeting venue for 2018 is Vic Books Pipitea, Rutherford House, 27 Lambton Quay, Wellington.

Next meeting

Our next meeting is on Monday 18 June. Join us for an exciting new event: Pipitea Book Pitch. We have a confirmed line-up of ten marvellous local authors (all NZSA members), who will each have three minutes to tell you about their book, and convince you that it should go straight to the top of your To Be Read pile.

Find more details about Pipitea Book Pitch on the NZSA events calendar, or take a look at the programme.

Quote from Denis Glover (1912-1980)
From ‘Wellington Harbour is a Laundry’ in Come High Water, Dunmore Press, 1977

The harbour is an ironing board;
Flat iron tugs dash smoothing toward
Any shirt of a ship, any pillowslip
Of a freighter they decree
Must be ironed flat as washing from the sea.
