Tickets to the Sit Down and Write Workshop to be run by Jacquie McRae on the Sunday of the Word Café weekend are selling fast.
If you are planning to attend this popular workshop, you may like to reserve your place now, as tickets are selling fast.
Jacquie describes the workshop as giving participants – whether they are potential writers, or well-established ones, already fully immersed in their craft – tools, encouragement and exercises to get on with their work.
“My aim is to encourage people to sit down and write,” says Jacquie. “I have myself received so much valuable tuition and mentoring towards being a writer over the years, that I want to give some of this back.”
The techniques explored in the workshop will apply to all genres and styles of writing, and participants will take away links to websites, books and writing competitions, to keep them motivated after the workshop finishes.
Jacquie McRae (Tainui) is herself an award-winning writer, whose short stories and novel are published by Huia Publishers. She holds a Masters in Creative Writing with first class honours, and is currently working on a second novel, which she hopes to have ready for publication later this year.
The Sit Down and Write Workshop will be held from 9am to 11am, on Sunday 2 July at the Raglan Town Hall. Tickets cost $25 and are available from the Word Café Raglan website: www.wordcaferaglan.co.nz
