The 2024 Kāpiti Writers' Retreat
February 23 - 25, El Rancho

Immerse yourself in writing and conversation this summer. There’s something for everyone – whether you’re new to writing, an established writer, or somewhere in-between.

The Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat is back from 23-25 February 2024 for our three-day gathering for writers which encompasses intensive morning workshops, lively discussions, and space to write, relax, and engage with topics critical to your work.

We are honoured to have Te Ati Awa local Mohi Edwin open our weekend and share some of the stories of the local area with a walk through the awa and estuary.

Leading writers of Aotearoa, Cassie Hart, Isa Pearl Ritchie, Kiri Piahana-Wong, Ingrid Horrocks, Sasha Francis, Paula Morris, Helen Lehndorf and Catherine Cooper will share their experience and insight through intensive morning workshops on world-building, series, poetry, eco-fiction, zines and fiction, lively afternoon sessions and one-on-one sessions on your current fiction or nonfiction project.

There will also be free writing sessions, an open mic, yoga, and the time to connect with other writers and enjoy the beautiful natural environment.

We welcome writers and writing from all backgrounds and strive to provide surroundings that meet the needs of all participants. We do not tolerate racism, discrimination, hate-speech, bullying or harassment of any kind.

Limited places.
