Writers on Monday

The excellent*, popular Writers on Monday series continues at City Gallery on Mondays (1pm) with some splendiferous youngies.

11 September: The Next Page (2)
Our season of emerging talent continues with another ten writers for the page: this week includes Craig Cliff and Tom Fitzsimons, chaired by Bill Manhire.

18 September: Short/Sharp/Script (1)
Scriptwriting is in the spotlight this week as professional actors give rehearsed readings from plays by writers taking the MA (Script) workshop, chaired by Ken Duncum. Five scripts, one lunch-hour, and always one of our fastest-moving and most unpredictable events! This session features work by Sam Bradford and others.

25 September: Short/Sharp/Script (2)
This week five more scripts are given the once-over by the actors and director.

2 October: Two Australian writers – Ken Bolton & Cath Kenneally
Ken Bolton and Cath Kenneally last performed in Wellington at Writers and Readers Week ten years ago. Since then Cath has continued to work as an arts broadcaster and has published more poetry and a novel (Room Temperature) about memory, time, and the struggle to break away from a vicious family cycle of abuse. Ken Bolton’s energetic output as a poet, art critic, publisher, and editor continues unabated with Little Esther Books and Adelaide’s Lee Marvin Reading series. He also manages the Dark Horsey Bookshop at Adelaide’s Experimental Arts Foundation. Cath & Ken update us on their work in readings and conversation with Gregory O’Brien.
