Writers on Mondays: The Fuse Box

12.15-1.15pm
Te Papa Marae, Level 4

Wellington

From July to October each year, the International Institute of Modern Letters, home of Victoria University’s prestigious Creative Writing programme, runs a series of events highlighting the very latest work of writers active in Wellington and further afield. All in all, a lively and stimulating way to begin the week – and it’s free!

The Fuse Box is a brand new collection of essays and interviews with some of our best writers that aims to shine fresh light on the creative process.This event assembles some of the book’s contributors to explore issues relevant to all stages of the writing life: how to get started and what to write about, how to keep the flow going over time, freedom and constraint, how your writing might meet the world, and how to make the most of accidents. Playwright Gary Henderson, novelists Rajorshi Chakraborti and Elizabeth Knox, and poet James Brown join editors Chris Price and Emily Perkins to celebrate the launch of The Fuse Box.
