The reality of being a writer, either full-time or part-time, is more than a calling to creativity. Understanding the basic principles of the industry as a business is key to a productive writing career. In an engaging and interactive session, writer Elizabeth (Libby) Kirkby-McLeod will take you through the basics of writing as a business.


The workshop costs $30 and includes morning tea. Registration required.


The Trust Waikato Building is on Little London Lane, off London Street, Hamilton. The Trust has a sizeable carpark and there is lots of parking outside and close by.


Elizabeth (Libby) Kirkby-McLeod is the author of several books including a poetry collection and the children’s series Eugene’s Island. She also edited Lit: Stories from Home (OneTree House, 2021). She speaks regularly about writing for radio and at events, and works part-time as a staff reporter for Radio New Zealand. Elizabeth has a new epistolary novel (written in the form of letters) coming out with Cuba Press soon. She is an active member of the New Zealand Society of Authors,  producing the NZSA Oral History Podcast series.
