Call for writers
Posted at 2:15pm Tuesday 13 Oct, 2020
Budding writers are invited to join Hibiscus Coast Writers, which meets at the Whangaparāoa Library on the second Saturday of each month, starting at 1pm.
Club secretary Chris Curtis says numbers have fallen during the year, which she attributes to the impact of Covid-19, as well as the normal attrition that happens as people's lives change.
“Now that we're back at Level 1, I'm hoping we will see a few new faces at our meetings,” she says.
The club provides a supportive environment for people to share their work and get feedback.
Guest speakers also feature regularly on the annual programme, providing tutorials on writing for different genres, fiction and non-fiction, scripts and even poetry.
For some members, the group has been instrumental in them becoming published authors.
Chris says the group patron is local author Fiona Sussman.
The first meeting is free, with an annual membership fee of $40. Info: Phone Chris on 021 231 8318
