There are – in the tradition of Katherine Mansfield, Robin Hyde and Janet Frame – many Aotearoa writers who live beyond our shores. What message would they like us to hear?
What can our writers who have returned home offer their far flung fellow wordsmiths? And how can we all take inspiration from these trailblazers and use the written word to connect with our own loved ones who are overseas?
As part of this year’s Festival, we’ll be offering a series of digital works that contemplate these questions and encourage our community to do the same. Keep an eye out around town and on our virtual platforms for ways to connect.
