This is the last writing workshop part of Book School before we move onto editing and production.

Poet Airini Beautrias' collection Western Line includes a cycle of Charms and Curses. In this workshop we will use a selection of these as a basis for writing our own spells and incantations for the world around us.

Pip Adam has published a collection of short stories, Everything We Hoped For (VUP, 2010) and two novels, I’m Working on a Building (VUP, 2013) and The New Animals (VUP, 2017). The New Animals won New Zealand's top fiction prize in 2018, the Acorn Foundation Prize for Fiction. Pip makes the Better off Read (https://betterreadnz.wordpress.com/) podcast where she talks with authors about writing and reading.

Book School is an 8-week series that takes participants from writing through to production and all the way to the book launch. Come to one or come to all.
