Writers attending the National Writers Forum in September can enter to win a package of two valuable prizes offered by the Michael King Writers Centre, Aotearoa New Zealand’s national writers’ facility and literary centre.
The two prizes are a week’s accommodation at the centre; and a one-on-one craft workshop with the award-winning writer Paula Morris, Associate Professor at the University of Auckland, convenor of its Master in Creative Writing programme, and a trustee of the Michael King Writers Centre.
The National Writers Forum, organised by the New Zealand Society of Authors, will be held at the University of Auckland on 21-23 September 2018. Over two and a half days, across seminars, masterclasses and panels, writers will talk, learn and share information about the craft of writing, the business of writing and the world of words. Attendees who register their details at the Michael King Writers Centre stand will enter the draw for both these prizes.
