The Northland branch of the NZ Society of Authors was formed in 1996, and some of the original members still play central roles in our organisation today. Our group has expanded to include around 80 members who come from all over Northland — from farmland, bush, coastal settlements and the towns of Whangārei, Kaitaia, Kerikeri and Dargaville. If you are a writer residing in Northland and interested in finding out more about writing activities in Northland, then you are in the right place.
Local Writing Opportunity: The New Zealand Society of Authors Te Puni Kaituhi O Aotearoa (PEN NZ Inc) is bringing their Regional Roadshow to Northland. The roadshow brings professional development to the regions and the Whangārei event will be held on Saturday 13 November 2021. The event will build collegiality, connection and new opportunities for professional development. It will be lively, inclusive, stimulating and practical and offer something for writers across the spectrum. All Northland writers are welcome although numbers may be restricted based on venue size and any COVID restrictions. Further information, booking details and costs can be found here.
