Enjoy our engaging themed social programme
Together with local hospitality teams we have two shared lunches and three evenings of entertainment.
These are subject to minor changes as details are finalised.
We also allow plenty of time for writers to chose their own cafes and restaruants at Eat Street, to cater for a wide variety of tastes and budgets.
Room in, Zoom in or Pop-Up
We have had so much fun putting this programme together for you.
Our seven step, seven day programme at our Annual Writer's Festival works both on and off line - either in Room or by Zoom.
Whether through our virtual cameras, or in person in Rotorua yourself, or through recordings of our experiences, we take writers to the most beautiful lakes, wonderous forests, incredbile geothermal wonderlandscape and places of cultural and historical interest.
We hope this week inspires your writing, re-ignites your creative fire and makes you feel like you belong.

Small and safe: only 24 Tickets live tickets released
7 Day, 5 Day, 3 Day or Single Day Writer's Festival Tickets are still available. Or order the replays for $9.99.
To keep it very small and safe for everyone, we are only issuing 24 tickets at most sessions, or a few more for our Community sessions.
This is the optimal ratio to allow our tutors and hospitality teams to provide a duty of care, not only for your learning, but to the personal health and hygeine of all our patrons, some of whom are immune compromised.
For the PublishME programme (Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 of October), there are a single, discounted tickets for Community Events, in slightly larger publically owned venues - thanks to our generous sponors and funding agencies.
All Look After Me Venues always allow for adequate personal space, ventilation with detailed attention to following recommended health and safety practices.
We only work with certified food and beverage operators who comply with all hospitality guidelines and best practice.
All Festival passes include lots of inclusions, bonuses and surprises
