Te Papa Tupu

For Māori writers looking to take the next step. 

This is a six-month programme specifically for writers who are part way to completing a manuscript and looking to take a step forward in their journey to publishing. 

Chosen writers are partnered with a mentor to develop their manuscript and improve their writing skills, all to meet the end goal of having a publishable manuscript. Writers will attend workshops and a national writers festival, become part of a writing community, and receive a grant to cover costs.

At the end of the programme writers submit their manuscript to Huia Publishers for consideration.
