Talk notes: NZF Writers and Readers – Women Changing the World

Above: Anahera Gildea, Maraea Rakuraku, Michelle A’Court, Charlotte Wood, Charlie Jane Anders, Renee, Annabel Langbein, Selina Tusitala Marsh, Patricia Lockwood, Kim Hill and Harry Giles. Below: Jenny Bornholt, Louise Wallace, Tayi Tibble and Marianne Elliot.

Do you know how hard it is to draw people with microphones in front of their faces or lecterns, in the case of Michelle A-Court?

I made the mistake of trying to fit everyone onto the first page, which is why the second page is so empty. A special sorry to Selina Tusitala Marsh’s beautiful face. I chose the wrong angle to draw her from and did my best to recover. I’d like to think it’s dramatic rather than insulting. After all, the theme of the night was don’t police the way we present ourselves. I want a ‘grumpy face’ like Kim Hill’s.

Thanks to Booksellers NZ, for the ticket.
