“I couldn’t imagine a better place for me to complete my novel than the MCW programme at the University of Auckland.

“I worked for more than 25 years in journalism and corporate communications, from a newspaper editor in New York to a travel writer, magazine editor and public relations professional in New Zealand. All along, I had an idea for a novel about an American family in the 1970s, and this year I finally decided to write it.

“I knew working with an award-winning novelist and experienced teacher would do wonders for my writing, but I hadn’t imagined how valuable it would be to work with supportive classmates and how much we benefit from the MCW’s connection to Auckland’s dynamic and diverse creative arts community.”
