New Kiwi Women Write Their Stories

This week I started a workshop series for migrant women in Albany - it's an idea started by Matt Blomeley at Auckland City Council, and I was lucky enough to be approached as convenor. Due to Matt's hard work in promotion the course has been enthusiastically received and we started with not only a fully subscribed course, but a waiting list! You can keep track of how the workshops are going here.

This sounds fantastic. Arnold Zable - the Australian writer - does a lot of work with immigrants especially refugees - story workshops that can apparently do wonders in terms of dealing with the disruption of moving to another country and possible trauma on leaving it. I hope it goes well. I'd be interested in doing something similar in Wellington. It was lovely to meet you recently btw.
