La Fiesta 2017 promo posterThis week, I’m taking part in three events at the fabulous Whanganui festival, La Fiesta (gotta love alliteration!).  Can you make it or do you know anyone who might like to come?


THE FLOOD – Thursday 23rd February

I’m excited to be alongside Annette Main, Tanea Tangaroa and Rachel Plank in a panel discussion about extreme weather, climate change and the role of creativity with esteemed MC Nicola Patrick.  Please bring your questions and join us, whatever the weather!


INSIGHTS FROM A FIRST-TIMER – Friday 24th February

In this workshop for writers of all kinds, I’m going to be sharing my experiences as an indie author self-publishing for the first time. Bring your questions and come ready to do some thinking about how you might reach an audience for your own stories.

PERSUASIVE MARKETING – Friday 24th February

1pm to 3pm at Ladies Rest, 75 St Hill Street, Whanganui – FREE!

I put my professional experience as a marketer to use every day as an indie-author. Please join me for the first delivery outside Auckland of my popular workshop on writing messaging for your organisation.  Practice putting your passion into compelling words to attract support, customers or funders.
