Walk with Words On A Small Island

Walk with Words On A Small Island

In collaboration with the Waiheke Walking Festival

Bring your walking shoes and sunhats and meet Greg O’Brien and a group of Waiheke writers and poets as you walk up and across the stunning Matiatia headland and discover words that give meaning to place.

Meet on the beach at Matiatia, where Greg O’Brien will send you on your journey with inspirational readings from his latest works. Meet Nora West, Kayla MacKenzie-Kopp, Robynne Winton and Ingrid Scott (contributing to authors to Sentries of the Heart) set up at different points along the walk and listen to prose and poetry deeply evocative of the landscape around you.

At the end of the walk be greeted by multi-disciplinary artist, performance poet and award winning writer Alex Stone to be sent on your way with words that remind you of your journey to a small island.

This is a free event but please book your place with the Waiheke Walking Festival.
