This year we have Bay of Plenty Columnist, Marcel Currin coming to share his writing journey to inspire you. Marcel Currin is a writer just like you, trying to etch a mark or two on the world in between paying the mortgage. He has worked in television as a writer and in local government as a communication advisor. For the past two years he has carved out a reputation as a cheerful weekly opinion columnist in the Bay of Plenty Times. His poetry has been published in several New Zealand anthologies and he has also self-published a book of short stories, Ministry of Ideas, which you can find on Amazon’s kindle store. He keeps his creative stuff online at

The 2014 writers' weekend was a very special weekend. The speakers were inspirational and the participants were a great bunch, that left as friends. It was a treat to hear others share their writing and satisfying to see many participants achieve their writing goals for the weekend.
