Story: Te Ara – a history

Writers' meeting

Writers' meeting

To assist in the preparation of their Te Ara stories, the writers met about once a month to discuss such matters as sources, conflicting interpretations, problems of presenting complex material in simple terms and any other issues on which fellow writers could provide advice.  Engaged in discussion are, from left, Nancy Swarbrick, Peter Clayworth, Megan Cook, Ben Schrader, Kerryn Pollock, Mark Derby and Jock Phillips.
