Creating Stories from History: Heritage Festival open afternoon at the MKWC
The Friends of the Michael King Writers' Centre will host an open afternoon at the centre as part of Auckland's Heritage Festival.
The open afternoon will begin at 2 pm on Sunday 25 September, with a talk by The University of Auckland/Creative New Zealand Fellow at the MKWC, Michelanne Forster, who will talk about Creating stories from history: Issues, dilemmas and practical advice. She will discuss the steps she would take to write a story about the Signalman's House.
After Michelanne's talk, visitors will be able to look around the centre, enjoy the view over the Waitemata Harbour and have a browse around the collections in the old Signalman's House. You will be welcome to join the Friends for a cuppa. This is a free event and can be combined with a walk around Mt Victoria/Takarunga to look at some of the other historical sites on the mountain.
There are a wide range of events and activities as part of the Heritage Festival, which is supported by the Auckland Council.
