Ngā Ringa Tuhituhi Kupu Māori Writers Festival 2023 comes to Rotorua for another year of kōrero and rich mātauranga. Rere te maramara! The chips will be flying throughout our exciting events taking place on marae and in some of Rotorua's most iconic literary venues. Hear intimate kōrero from legendary Māori writers and soak up the atmosphere as they share their journey through a range of writing crafts. Join us as we celebrate indigenous storytellers.
Be inspired by authors, screenwriters, kapa haka composers and language champions, there will be something for everyone.
