Kāpiti Island will again host a Māori writer in 2012, marking the fifth year of the Tau Mai e Kapiti Māori Writer’s Residency.
The residency, funded by Te Waka Toi/Creative New Zealand and hosted by Kaitiaki o Kāpiti Trust, funds a Māori writer, songwriter, playwright or poet to spend eight weeks living and working at the northern end of Kāpiti Island. The area includes the island's last remaining Māori-owned land, adjoining the internationally regarded predator-free nature reserve Kāpiti is well-known for.
Applications are now open for the 2012 residency, with a closing date of 15 July 2012. The selection panel's decision will be announced by the 13 August, with the residency commencing 10 September 2012.
