Writers Week is fast approaching: from 8—13 March you can get your fill of stimulating discussion.
Opening the festival in style - and packing quite some punch - is the Gala Showcase: Fighting Talk on Thu 10 March. Five writers who have never appeared on stage together before have been busily preparing their personal stories on the theme of 'rapprochement' {nounthe development of friendlier relations between countries or groups of people who have been enemies}. Robert DessaixMariko TamakiEtgar KeretCourtney Sina Meredith and Sally Gardner are coming from all corners of the globe to be in Wellington, and each have a tale to tell of conflict, and possibly of resolution. 
There is something for every interest at Writers Week: from running and the science of endurance, to genetics and brain surgery, to selling books and special effects, to slam poetrymonsters and magical worlds
