Join us as literature comes to life in New Plymouth this winter as we reprise our Festival of Words in a Pop Up format. With limited events and speakers you can be assured this Pop Up still packs a punch!

You can expect a fabulous four day programme that is filled with conversation, inspiration and workshops from some of Aoteroa’s headline names of the literary arts.

From writing workshops with Dame Fiona Kidman, to conversations with mental health champion Matt Brown, book making, and more - we can’t wait to celebrate all that the world of words has to offer this season.

We invite you to come along and enjoy the Festival of Words Pop Up across Puke Ariki, our community Libraries and Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. To secure your place in this wonderful four day festival make sure you book online or at the Puke Ariki i-SITE today.

See you soon,
The Puke Ariki Festival of Words Team
