EXCLUSIVE OFFER TO THE INDEPENDENT BOOK FESTIVAL E-ZINE LIST!
10% DISCOUNT ON THE RENOWNED CREATIVE HUB 30 WEEK NOVEL WRITING COURSE, STARTING 29th SEPTEMBER:
The Creative Hub, Auckland’s Waterfront Writing Centre
The next 30 Week Fiction Course begins on 29th Sept 2015. The course is in its sixth year, and features many of NZ’s leading writers and editors as workshop leaders and mentors, including Fiona Kidman, Tessa Duder, Geoff Walker, Roger Hall, Owen Marshall, Chris Else, Sarah Laing, Elisabeth Smither and Judith White. Students receive one-on-one mentoring over the summer with an established Kiwi writer. Graduates regularly report that the most valuable aspect of the course is the close support of a group of like-minded start out writers. Many graduate groups go on meeting for years after the end of the course, so you get several years support for the price of one! Thirteen graduates of our 30 week fiction courses have gone on to publish novels or win prizes in national writing awards.
Imagine a bookshop filled to the brim with books written by Kiwi authors
We’re ‘Writer’s Plot Readers Read’ and we’re a book shop in Upper Hutt. Or, rather, we will be on October 1, 2015. When we open our doors for the very first time. Excited? We are.
We're looking for all genres of adult or YA fiction and we're keen on short story collections and poetry.... If you’re a New Zealand author who writes fiction and is published with a small to medium sized press (anywhere), and would like your books in our book shop, you can contact us at the following email address: email@example.com
or tweet us @writers_plot
Exhibitors are welcome to set up their space on Friday and Saturday
Friday 6.00 pm - 9.00 pm
Saturday 8.00 am - 11.00 am
Times need to be strictly adhered to so on Friday night I can have my beauty sleep. On Saturday everybody needs to be ready for visitors to walk in the door at midday.
Make Your Space Work
The main exhibitor area is open plan so you need to start thinking about how to make if work for you and your visitors.
Things to take into consideration in your 3m x 3m space:
- Table and Chair Layout for you and your customers
- Utilising Furniture from Home (Chairs, Rugs, Display Units)
- Shelving for Storage, Display and Stand Separation
- Posters (stand-alone or attached to your table)
- Props & Plants
- Gazebo, Bunting, Flags
- Colour (Tablecloth, Furniture, Rug, Beanbags, Cushions)
The exhibitor area will shut down at 4.00 pm on Saturday afternoon. However, the café manager has agreed to stay open for exhibitors until 6.00 pm for snacks and drinks. It's a good way to relax and network with the others after a busy day. Please let us know if you'd like to stay on so we can get an idea of nibbles required. Drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and meals can be purchased directly from the café staff.
