Aotearoa Creative Writing Research Network (ACWRN) is a national organisation for creative writers, creative writing teachers and students as well as those in industries related to creative writing. It is a way for anyone interested in creative writing to connect and communicate across New Zealand, Australia and beyond. Registration is free in 2015 – go to http://acwrn.ac.nz for more information and to create a profile.
In addition to offering a creative writing news and events Twitter feed, online resources, and a brief video from the 2014 Professing Creativity Conference, the ACWRN website features a fully-searchable members directory, which allows members to include a photo and selected personal details as well as to register professional details, such as institutional affiliation, research supervision areas, and website links. ACWRN sends mass emails very infrequently, so joining the organiastion will not clog up your inbox. The Twitter feed will serve as the primary means of communicating creative writing news and events, so please follow acwrn on Twitter. Your creative writing news and events will also display in the ACWRN feed with @acwrn in your tweet.
