About MWF



Celebrating the power of writing weaving communities together.

Manawatu Writers’ Festival 2017 is an opportunity to bring together Manawatu writers, readers and people who are passionate or curious about the craft of writing. The event will feature established authors, informative speakers with up-to-date information about writing and publishing, with workshops, activities, and elements of fun, humour and inspiration.
The intention is for this event to be as inclusive as possible, in terms of culture, ethnicity and diversity, with writing representative of the scope of Manawatu’s mosaic of communities.
