National Writers Forum: 2018 & 2016
In 2018 and 2016 NZSA put on the National Writers Forum: a unique national conference for all New Zealand writers. Prestigious local and international speakers shared their knowledge, ideas and experience and provided a chance for writers to meet others from New Zealand’s writing community.
For information on the past forums see below.
For 2021 and beyond, NZSA is moving away from a weekend conference to a series of regional one-day conferences. More information on these will be available soon!
