New Kiwi Women Fly - 2 day masterclass, January 2015

Have you ever wanted to write and be published, and to share your unique stories? Do you want to meet other writers?

New Kiwi Women Fly is a masterclass series for migrant women writers. Spend two Saturdays (January 10th and 17th, 2015) in the beautiful surrounds of Cotter House with an experienced tutor exploring either poetry, fiction or scriptwriting in more depth. At the end of this you will have the opportunity to submit writing for an anthology*, as well as have your work showcased at a book launch/reading to take place after the workshop.

You will make contact with other writers and have the opportunity to network. Workshops will include exercises, discussion on "the state of the industry" and how to get your work seen and heard.

This course is intended to extend those who have already embarked on the journey of being a writer. To be part of this, you must be a woman who was not born in NZ, and you must have attended any other previous writing course and/or had a piece of creative writing published.
Tutors are Miriam Barr (poetry), Siobhan Harvey (prose) and Renee Liang (scriptwriting). You will explore one stream for the full 2-day course, but there will be opportunities for the whole group to interact, discuss and share.

We are grateful to Cotter House for providing the venue and to Creative Communities for partially subsidising this course.

Course costs: $110 full. $20 discount available to graduates of the New Kiwi Women Write course. If you are currently unwaged and/or on a benefit, course costs $50. There is no requirement to be a NZ resident. Please register early as numbers are limited to 15 per stream.

* The anthology
This is a professionally designed and published book (book designer Sarah Laing), available for public sale and to libraries, schools etc. The anthology editing and production costs are partially subsidised by the course and books will be available to participants at a reduced cost. The intent is to provide a lasting record of the course, to share our writing more widely with readers and other writers and to give the full experience, from writing to publication, to course participants.

Early-bird pricing ends Nov. 30th: Auckland Fostering Sustainable Behaviour Workshops

I will be delivering introductory community-based social marketing training in Auckland on April 9-10 (early-bird pricing is available until November 30th). This workshop will be of interest to those working to promote waste reduction, water and energy efficiency, conservation, modal transportation changes, catchment protection, and other sustainable behaviour changes. Those who work to promote behavioural changes that promote health, such as active lifestyles, will also benefit from attending. Community-based social marketing is a unique approach to fostering both environment and health related behavioural changes and is now being utilized in hundreds of programs across New Zealand and Australia. A description of the workshop is provided below.

Registration Site: https://register.cbsm.com/workshops/auckland-2015
Please note that space in this workshop is limited. Further, I do not expect to deliver this workshop again in New Zealand for several years.  If you are interested in attending a community-based social marketing workshop, please register early to avoid disappointment.
Best, Doug
