The Great Write Inn

The Great Write Inn is a story-telling event to help writers and readers connect.

We make it quick, fun and easy, to go from being an unpublished writer to a published author and get a lifelong goal ticked off the bucket list.

All events start by plunging authors into the Writer’s Matrix to reinvigorate their creative thinking.

Writers spend a whole morning in an "exotic, exquisite location’’ where they explore and choose a room, create at least one character and plot to involve an object in a new short story.

The location of the first Writer’s Matrix is Olveston Historic Home, but there are plans to take the event to other places of historical interest, such as a train, cathedral or village.

In a bid to keep stories about Dunedin circulating internationally, selected stories produced as a result of the event will be edited and published in a new story collection, called One Home, Many Stories.

The first Great Write Inn event is 16-17 October 2021.
