Writers from all over New Zealand access our well respected professional development programmes and services. Our core programmes of Adult and Youth Mentorship for both writers and comic / graphic novelists, CompleteMS (full manuscript assessment), and StartWrite (synopsis and chapter assessment to give key advice to writers developing new projects) provide writers with the opportunity to receive feedback, to take risks, to experiment and be innovative within a nurturing professional environment. This results in high quality writing and publications that are published, purchased and read.
