Word Cafe Raglan readers and writers festival

Word Café Raglan is returning to the Raglan Town Hall, with an inspiring programme of writers, events and workshops.
Word Café celebrates the joy and power of words, supporting and promoting writers of all types and genres, and at all stages of their career.
Well-known authors featuring at this year’s festival include media personality and novelist Karyn Hay, poet Paula Green, graphic novelist Sarah Laing and international best-selling novelist Nalini Singh. They appear alongside a host of local and first-time authors, plus writers of all stripes and spots in between.
The crammed programme spans three days and includes a spoken poetry showcase, an evening extravaganza and open mic night, book launches, author Q&As, and a writing workshop and competition.
Tickets are $100 for a weekend pass; and $25 for the Sunday morning writing workshop. Door sales will be available to individual sessions as space allows.
