The Manawatū Writers’ Festival 2020 is going ahead on September 11-13 in Feilding – and I’m pleased to be on this panel:
Discussion Panel: Writing the World
Sunday 13 September, 3:15pm – 5:00pm
Be entertained by this panel of acclaimed authors as they robustly discuss how writing fiction or poetry can bring about social or political change and why a number of activists are now turning to these mediums.
Here’s the Facebook page for the Festival: https://www.facebook.com/manawatuwritersfestival/
COVID-19 has done much, much worse than disrupt literary festivals – but it’s had a bad effect there too, with the Auckland Writers’ Festival cancelled, the Blackball Readers and Writers Festival postponed, and the World Science Fiction Convention virtualised – so it’s great to see the Manawatū Writers’ Festival 2020 going ahead.
