About this event

UPDATE: In light of the Omicron outbreak and the cancellation of Auckland Pride, and in the interest of keeping our community safe, the 2022 Samesame but Different Festival will now take place online, including this event. You can still register via Eventbrite, and if you have already reserved a place in any of our events, we will make sure to send you the link so that you can enjoy the online version. Thank you for your understanding and we hope that you will still join us to hear from our fantastic LGBTQI+ writers and creatives!

‘Going from writing aspirational poems about a future where Pacific women are in charge, to my leadership role in at Tautai – the significance of that is not lost on me.’ From award-winning poetry to essays and children’s books, Courtney Sina Meredith has a vast body of work that spans genres, and has even been called ‘genre-bending’.

Her bold, self-assured style of writing has attracted attention across Aotearoa and on the international stage. Courtney’s work delves into issues such as racism, sexism and poverty and draws on her Samoan roots. In conversation with literary luminary Jeremy Hansen.

This event is part of the 2022 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
