The Press Christchurch Writers Festival

September 9, 2010 – September 12, 2010

86 Kilmore Street
Christchurch, Canterbury

New Zealand

Type: Fair/Festival

Web site: http://www.chchwritersfest.co.nz/

Description: Held in the Christchurch Town Hall and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu

The Press Christchurch Writers' Festival is the largest of its kind in the South Island and has become a major event in the city's rich cultural life . Since its inception in 1997, the Festival has been steadily growing in size and status. Traditionally it was held as an annual winter event, but in 2004 it became a biannual, Spring celebration of the written word. In moving the Festival to early September we have aligned our dates with the Melbourne and the Brisbane Writers' Festivals, which will enable Christchurch to share many of their high profile international authors.

The Festival is a truly interactive event where sessions are opened up to audience discussion and participation; where intensive writing workshops inspire and help people in their own artistic endeavours, and young readers get to listen to and talk to their favourite authors, and develop as writers under their guidance.
