National Writers Forum Postponed Until 2021

The New Zealand Society of Authors Te Puni Kaituhi o Aotearoa (PEN NZ INC) is sad to advise that we have taken the decision to postpone our 2020 NZSA National Writers Forum until 2021.

We are seeing many public events being cancelled, and our organisation would be negatively impacted if we invested in a conference we could not deliver. Therefore we have decided to make this call early, as we expect disruption will continue for some time. We were in a position where overseas writers who had contracted to come, were cancelling and it made our event uncertain. These are strange and unusual times.

The upside is that we will be developing a series of dynamic and interactive digital resources and on-line courses that can be accessed and shared with our members or member hubs. This will be a new addition to the services we offer.

More of this to come, meanwhile stay safe and well, and we all hope that by working together we can protect the health of our members and the wider community.
