On March 2, a 30-week Advanced Fiction course, provides students with an opportunity to read their work on radio, and to polish their industry knowledge as well as their fiction technique.
The inaugural Advanced Course, in 2010, also featured workshop by book publicist Lorraine Steele and fiction publisher at Random House Harriet Allan.
On 12 April, a new Travel Writing and Photography course (six weeks), taught by journalist and former NZ Herald travel editor Yvonne van Dongen and photographer Greta Anderson provides an opportunity for aspiring travel writers to venture out into the city ‘on assignment’ with professional support.
Courses are held in the Creative Hub waterfront rooms at the Maritime Museum on Princes Wharf.
Mr Cranna said, ‘ We aim to provide a supportive, fun atmosphere, where our students can experiment with their own authentic literary voice. And we bring in Auckland’s top writers to impart their skills on the craft and technique side. We’re always delighted by the wide age range of our students.’
