South Taranaki District Libraries offer free writing workshops with Judges of the awards. 2020 workshops will be held on Saturday June 13th
Whiti Hereaka will be focusing on character creation -- how to create compelling characters that feel and sound real. We’ll be exploring how story and action spring from character, she says. While Poetry judge, Glenn Colquhoun will cover ways of approaching the writing and shaping of poems … as well as some ways of picking them up every now and then, like shells on a beach.’
