But wait, there’s more! The Christchurch Writers Festival returns

LogoIt’s not just the Christchurch Arts Festival back on deck – the Christchurch Writers Festival, ‘quaked out not once but twice, rises from the rubble with some great sessions at the Christchurch Arts Festival in August.

Best-selling crime writers Tess Gerritsen and John Hart will spend an hour Setting the Stage for Murder on 21 August at the TelstraClear Club in the Events Village in Hagley Park.

Five writers with strong Canterbury links will also be Putting Words to the Feelings about the earthquakes on Sunday 18 September at 1 pm.  Fiona Farrell, Tusiata Avia, Carl Nixon, Joanna Preston and Charlottte Randall will be reflect on  their experiences and on how the reimagined landscape will emerge within their writing, also at the TelstraClear Club.

    I saw the same or very similar line up of 5 authors at the Auckland Festival and they were good, but I have also been very impressed by the series of earthquake-related poems that Helen Lowe has been posting recently as part of the Tuesday Poem blog and thought last Tuesday’s “Indifferent Planet” was outstanding.

    Don’t forget Lloyd Jones and I will be in conversation on July 27th at the Cashmere Club at 6.30pm!
