Due to Alert Level restrictions we are going ZOOM!

Update! The November Women’s Writing Weekend will be held via Zoom only. 

At Te Wahi Ora we’ve been considering the best way to host our Writing Weekend’s under Covid19 Alert Level restrictions. We value being able to engage face-to-face, as well as giving women the opportunity to engage with each other during a focused weekend retreat. However, with the current restrictions we will host the next Writing Weekend virtually via zoom on the 27-28th November

Below are the new dates for 2021 and first half of 2022. Places on these weekends do sell out so PLEASE, if you are interested in participating in one of these wonderful creative weekends please consider booking early.

The focus of this weekend is making time and space for you to write.
Spend and enjoyable weekend with like-minded women interested in creative writing. Share your thoughts and writing, get feedback and make some time to focus on your writing. 

The fee for this is only $45 per person. Please register with Te Wahi Ora and we will look forward to seeing you on zoom. Dace will assist everyone with setting up Zoom if you are concerned about technical aspects.

Virtual Writing Weekend PROGRAMME:


10AM-11AM 1st opening meeting

4PM-5PM  2nd meeting


11AM-12AM Closing session

We will begin each session with a brief guided meditation to bring us altogether and enable us to be present to our creativity, our inspiration and reflections.  Hilary will lead the session focusing on your writing and encouraging you to put aside at least an hour and a half each of the two days, for your own writing.
