Ruapehu Writers Festival

The Ruapehu Writers Festival team:
The festival is the brainchild of poet and academic Anna Jackson, Professor at Victoria University, and her husband Simon Edmonds, owner of Tuatua Café. They live part-time at Rangataua, in the Ruapehu district, and recognised what a fabulous place the area was for a writers festival. Joining them on the organising committee is poet and publisher Helen Rickerby. Lending their talents to our campaign video are writer and academic Harry Ricketts, and poet Nick Ascroft, just two of the fabulous writers you can enjoy at the festival.
