Well Written Writing Group with guest Christine Borra

Toi Poneke Arts Center

Carrying on from the wonderful monthly Awa Wahine group meets, Well Written is taking up the mantle and encouraging the lovely women writers of Wellington to continue meeting as often as we can. This month we will be gathering upstairs in Meeting Room West at the Toi Poneke Art Centre at 11am where Christine Borra from Yourbooks in Wellington will tell us all about self publishing and printing your own books with a local printer. Tabby Wood will also be on hand to answer any questions about her experiences publishing eBooks online and Print on Demand. Afterwards we can use the space to write until 2pm. The space will cost $24 in total so any donation towards the venue hire would be appreciated but not expected. Tea and coffee are not provided but it is fine to bring your own as long as the space is left tidy afterwards.

Wild Women, Wild Voices

Toi Poneke Arts Centre, 61 Abel Smith St, Te Aro, Wellington

“Wild Women, Wild Voices - Writing Your Authentic Self” in association with Well-Written Writing Group Writing workshops for women of all ages and backgrounds in the Wellington region starting May 2019. What do the words ‘wild’ and ‘woman’ conjure for you? Free and unpredictable, strong and uncontrollable, natural and fierce, deep dreaming and farsighted. Boundlessness, energy and creativity, joy and freedom. Risk taking, curious, brave, wise, feral, and extraordinary in her splendid glorious way of being. Taking inspiration from the words of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Judy Reeves, Maya Angelou, Rupi Kaur, Anne Lamott, Sharon Blackie and many, many other wild and empowering women writers, we can help each other to find our own Wild Voice through our writing and creativity. ‪Toi Pōneke Arts Centre ‬ 61/69 Abel Smith St, Te Aro, Wellington 6011 in Meeting Room West ‪10:30 - 12:30 every second Saturday of the month ‬ ‪Dates for your diary: ‬ ‪11th May‬ ‪8th June‬ ‪13th July‬ ‪10th August‬ ‪14th September‬ ‪12th October‬ ‪9th November‬ ‪14th December‬ sign up and queries to [masked] Sessions include: Claiming the Wild Woman, Finding and Listening to Your Voice, Creative Connections, Expressing the Wild Woman, The Geography of Our Lives, Life Journeys and Lessons, The Voice of the Senses, Intuitive Wisdom - the Wise Woman.
