Event Details

How amazing would it be to spend two uninterrupted days writing your latest project?

Or maybe you've been yearning to get that story idea onto the page but just haven't found the time...  

Maybe 2018 is the year you start taking your writing seriously... so let's start as we mean to go on.

Join me for a creatively inspiring and productive writing weekend that will get you fired up about your project and moving it forward.

Because it's time to stop thinking about writing and start...

LET'S GET WRITING is a dynamic, fun two-day workshop designed to give you the time, space and motivation to be the most productive writer you can be. 


Think of LET'S GET WRITING as a mini-retreat.

You won’t be writing alone, you’ll be working alongside a group of like-minded writers and socialising during the delicious coffee breaks. 

Spaces are limited so grab your $100 Earlybird discount now.

As a workshop participant, you will…

  • Clarify and improve your story idea.

  • Get focused and excited about your project no matter whether it’s brand new or already underway.

  • Get creatively re-energised about your writing.

  • Significantly move your writing project forward.

  • Get your new project well and truly underway.

  • Learn a series of creative brainstorming exercises.

  • Structure (or restructure)your story/project.

  • Receive a super handy workbook.

  • Learn how to build confidence and banish procrastination.

  • Receive constructive feedback and guidance.

  • Develop a writing plan for after the workshop.

  • Enjoy socialising with other writers.    

I’ll help you to focus your idea, develop your story and, importantly, stay motivated to work on that novel, short story, screenplay or play after the weekend. 

Who is the Let's Get Writing Weekend for?

 Any fiction writer (newer or experienced) who wants some enjoyable, dedicated writing time to progress their novel, short story, screenplay, play. (Spaces are limited so grab your place now.)

 (NB: If you've never written before - this one probably isn't right for you.)

More testimonials... 

“I wrote a story that was directly inspired by one of Kathryn’s creativity exercises during her workshop. The story went on to win a NZ Society of Authors competition and I have just heard that it has been accepted for publication in Landfall! A real breakthrough for me.” Bronwyn Calder - Writer 

"A great brainstorming session to sort out the ideas in your head. Thanks for starting my engine!"    Jane Asbury - Writer

 "Be warned!  This course is not just about sitting listening to talks and tips on writing which you can find in good books.  You have to write!  It`s like being dropped in at the deep end.  You learn to swim!  There is however, a benevolent life saver keeping watch and ready to rescue you if you feel you are getting out of your depth and you can climb into the lifeboat for some one-to-one help, which is both life-saving and inspirational when you need it.  I didn`t want to just learn  'about writing',  I wanted to learn  'to write'  and was well satisfied."  Ray Prowse – Writer, (Former) AUT lecturer – Academic Literacies

"Thanks for the fantastic session - I left so inspired !" Hayley Wolters - Administrator
