The 2017 Romance Writers of NZ Conference is coming up! Non-members welcome!

The 24th RWNZ Conference will be held in Rotorua from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th August 2017. We welcome anyone to register - you don’t have to be an RWNZ member.

We have such a great line-up of guest speakers and workshops. Whether you’re a fledgling writer or a publishing megastar, we guarantee you’ll come away with fresh ideas, hot tips, new friends, and fizzing with motivation!

Here are just some of the highlights: Kristen Lamb: our Friday full-day workshop speaker is a #1 bestselling guru on social media platforms for writers. Christie Craig: funny, motivational, multi-talented New York Times author. Kylie Scott and Anne Gracie: two of Australia’s most popular and entertaining international bestsellers, who want to help you succeed!

Plus, we have amazing international agents and editors, just waiting to discover the next big thing. And workshops on self-publishing, plotting (the story kind, not the evil genius kind), pacing, injecting emotional punch, writing blurbs, getting out of the slush pile, how to work Scrivener, the hot genre of Christian romance, and a special workshop for published authors.

You can also mix, mingle and meet new friends – as well as our special guests – win raffles and other prizes, get awesome goody bags, and have the most fun possible with writers at all stages of their careers.
