Presenters of Writing Off Valentine's Day Announced

Writing off Valentine's Day is the PRIDE 2015 creative writing seminar for GLBT writers of all levels of aspiration and accomplishment.

Hopefully we will have enough room for everyone.  But there is no need to book or secure a ticket.

Any inquiries can be emailed to alternativebindings@gmail.com.

There will be input from authors from a range of genres, along with editors and creative writing teachers. Bring your creative soul, ideas, paper, pen, laptops to write, discuss and produce words. This will be ideal way to word-up Valentine's Day in your own queer way.

Learn about the Zeitgeist of publishing and current literary trends, explore writing fiction and a new system for writing poetry and challenge yourself to switch genre without starting a new story from scratch.

Your presenters are:

Michael Giacon, an Auckland songwriter, poet, performer and educator.


Anne Kennedy, a poet and author, the winner of the 2014 Nigel Cox Unity Books Award, a finalist in the 2014 NZ Post Book Awards and in the 2015 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award,


Ian Watt, a publisher, editor and author,


Gina Cole, a barrister, poet and writer of Fijian, Scottish and Welsh descent. Gina won the 2014 Writing Contest.
