Meet the Tutors

We are extremely proud of our tutoring team at NZ Writers' College. Our writing tutors are full-time, professional writers who have won many writing awards, including Qantas Awards, Commonwealth Writers' Prizes, Montana New Zealand Book Awards, the Sir David Beatie Award, the Reed Fiction Award, Philip K Dick Memorial Award and the Arthur C Clarke Award.

They are passionate about writing and, at the same time, are warm, supportive teachers with years of understanding and experience in assessing writing. Many have taught MA programmes in Creative Writing or Journalism at universities and polytechnics in New Zealand and Australia.
