Workshop Facilitator – Linda Hansen

Linda Hansen has a diverse body of writing published in New Zealand and overseas, including three books. Her latest are YA novels An Unexpected Hero (2014) and Bad Oil and the Animals (2016). An Unexpected Hero,introducing Archibald Baxter, WW1 pacifist and father of James K. Baxter, is the 2017 choice for Year 7-8 in the ReadAloud programme shared by more than ninety NZ schools and others as far away as Connecticut. Over six weeks teachers read the book aloud, one chapter at a time, and students share online discussion and creative projects inspired by the story with each other and the author.


Linda brings to this workshop a lifetime’s pleasure in language, along with years of teaching writing at tertiary level. She has won several creative writing awards and also works as a storyteller for all ages, celebrating this ancestor of all literature. She holds a Master of Communications from Victoria University, is an NZSA and NZ Storylines member and you can see details of her recent books at www.lphansen.com.
