Covid 19 and Lockdown has affected Creative Writing Dunedin. primarily all online classes are running as usual. Face to Face classes have had dates changed. I will not be travelling overseas as planned so will remain as the tutor for all classes. Also in Lockdown have had new book published, Every Now and then I Have Another Child, Otago University Press, 2020
The programmes for 2020 are now online. I have added two new programmes, Towards Publication which is an online course designed for precious students whish to complete a major project with some support, and a Dunedin based course The Memoir/Poetry Manuscript class which is primarily for previous students wishing to attend a manuscript class as manuscript one and Two are nearly always full from one year to the next. I have shortened existing courses in recognition that it is easier to commit to a slightly shorter course. I am also planning an overseas trip September/ October so there will be no classes during that time. However, online courses will remain open and be marked by other tutors. other news for 2020 is that my new book, Every Now and then I have another child will be published by Otago University Press sometime in the first six months.
Both Manuscript classes are currently full . I have a writing residency at the Michael King Writers’ studio in Auckland mid-February to mid-March so most face to face classes in Dunedin will commence late March. Online classes will remain open and two experienced and well qualified tutors Raymond Huber and Penelope Todd will take over marking during this period. You can check them out in the About section.
I am currently setting the programme for 2020. Most face to face classes will start in February. Online classes can be started anytime.
Occasionally I get to teach somewhere else. here’s an account of class I took at Milton prison in a programme sponsored by University Bookshop Dunedin
