Wellington branch is lively and engaged. Our 200-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 at The Thistle Inn, Thorndon, as well as for Courage Day and our popular book auction and Christmas party.

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.
