After selling out in 2021 - WRITEFEST is back!

If you are a writer looking to improve your craft or a newer writer looking to learn and connect with other writers - this one day event is for you!

 

This year we're bringing together an amazing group of tutors and wordsmiths under one roof to teach a broad range of writing skills over one super stimulating day. Our tutors are all experienced, successful writers so what better opportunity to learn, upskill and get inspired whether you’re brand new or your writing is well under way. 

 

7 WORKSHOPS, 8 TUTORS , 3 COFFEE BREAKS, 1 POP-UP BOOK STORE and 1 HAPPY HOUR

NB: Tickets are strictly limited

 

HOW DO I ATTEND ?

There are a couple of ways to join us. 1) Come for the whole day. When you buy an ALL DAY PASS - you'll have an all access pass to all workshops, morning & afternoon tea plus our Happy Hour.

Or 2) buy a SINGLE WORKSHOP TIX and just drop in for an individual workshop that rings your bell - and grab a coffee after!
