Mixed: Creative Writing For Newcomers to Our Shores presents a selection of written works in various genres that tell the stories of new immigrants to New Zealand. Their work has been compiled and published alongside graphic illustrations which tell the viewer more about them as a person and about their culture.



The written contributions are complemented by graphically designed photographic prints by Brazilian artist Lucia Lemos M. Coneicao. Each artwork is a response to the poetry or prose, participant’s stories or is a visual prompt about the culture they come from. An exhibition at the Arts Village Rotorua will launch the book, complete with traditional song, dance and oral story telling.



“Mixed” originally started out as a mentoring project called “Write from the Heart”. Angie set out on a mission to teach and mentor immigrants as they negotiated the process of telling and writing their stories in various written forms. Now, we present their book to celebrate the stories of these newcomers to New Zealand along with their creative writing journey.
