The Dan Davin Conference on the New Zealand Short Story – its traditions and departures – will be held 1st - 3rd of September, 2017.
The conference is an opportunity to celebrate Southland-born author Dan Davin as one of the fathers of the modern New Zealand short story, and the development of the New Zealand short story to today. The short story has always been of significance in New Zealand literature, and continues to be an important form of writing. Some of New Zealand’s foremost writers of the genre including Owen Marshall, Dame Fiona Kidman and Tracey Slaughter will attend. Janet Wilson will be key note speaker. It will be the first conference for many years devoted entirely to the short story and its place in New Zealand literature.
We are able to provide discounted accommodation at the central city Kelvin Hotel and Ascot Park (outskirts). If you arrive early on Friday we can provide discounted passes to Bill Richardson’s Transport World and the Classic Motorcycle Mecca. And if we have adequate interest we can also provide discounts to visit Stewart Island on Monday 4 September.
Dunedin’s University Book Shop will be the Dan Davin Short Story conference bookseller with copies of speaker’s works and the ability to take orders.
