New Kiwi Women Write Their Stories’ is all about creating opportunities for migrant women in Auckland through a series of creative writing workshops, led by professional Kiwi women writers. At the end of the programme we publish New Beginnings, an anthology of work by these writers. The workshops are led by established and award winning New Zealand women writers. The programme is facilitated by Renee Liang.

New Kiwi Women Write Their Stories’ was created in 2012. The program is funded by Local Boards in Auckland. To date the programme has been delivered in Albany (2011), Glenfield (2013),  Sandringham (2013-2014) and Puketapapa (2015 & 2016).
