News to Use
MIRIA – another Writers Block stalwart from Wellington – was warmly welcomed (along with fellow newbies and first-timers, and she brought warm greetings and tidings from down the line.
David updated the group on progress with the JUKEBOX SEASON. Congratulations to those who were selected for development.
UPDATE: Due to not receiving a Creative New Zealand grant this round , it has been agreed with The Edge that the Jukebox season is not viable this year. Being a Polynesian project, it is typically hard to kill. Moves are a-jandle to mount it later in the year. Watch this corner of the boat.
Briar Grace-Smith’s Purapurawhetu – which JENNI HEKA has been full-on busy with lately – will be at the Hawkins Theatre in Papakura from 16-18 June.

The MANUKAU CREATIVE CLINICS will be taking place on 1-2 July.
DAVID dusted off some old scripts – another television pilot, and a feature script – for the meeting attendees’ entertainment. One was stodgy. One was a howl – though that was largely due to RICHARD’s reading voice.
