Karlo Mila is a poet, mother, researcher, writer and the Programme Director of the Mana Moana Experience at Leadership New Zealand. In this hands-on workshop, aimed at aspiring and established writers alike, she will focus on writing a poem deeply embedded in person and place. A range of exercises will help you write a textually layered poem that is evocative of self, belonging and origins. It will be grounded in personal reflection, whenua, memory and meaning-making.
You’re also invited to submit any writing done in this workshop for editing and publication in our Magazine-in-Residence, takahē – see here for details.
