The lovely Anna Mackenzie has stepped in at the last minute to take our creative writing workshops at Karori and Johnsonville Libraries this week (the equally lovely Jo Morris has had to bow out due to illness – thank you Jo for all your efforts so far!). We feel very lucky to have had two wonderful authors so willing to give their time for teens and the library – thank you Anna and Jo!
Our Karori workshop is now completely booked out, but there are still places at Johnsonville on Friday 4 May – call Johnsonville Library on 477 6151 to book your place!
Anna Mackenzie writes award-winning contemporary, speculative and historical fiction for adult and YA readers. Her vivid description and strong, credible characters earned Donnel’s Promise a place in the iBooks Best of 2014 list. Her latest title, Evie’s War, recently won a CLF Notable Book Award (Mackenzie’s seventh). In addition to writing fiction she edits magazines, mentors emerging writers and teaches creative writing workshops for adults and students. Her chief complaint in life is that there is never enough time.
