6-9 May, Dunedin, New Zealand

Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival

Dunedin is a UNESCO City of Literature and a gorgeous wee spot to boot. This festival is chock-full of wonderful talks, unique events, and exciting panels. I'll be involved in several different events across the festival.

22 May, Waipawa, Central Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Between the Lines – Waipawa Writers Festival

This might be my favorite event ever – a writers festival in the very small town where I grew up. 


I'll be presenting a self-publishing workshop at the local library – the library where I used to get all my books as a wee lass. I'm so excited! I can't wait to see you there.

    1-7th March, online
