Winter Readings is an annual event in Wellington organised by HeadworX Publishers, Earl of Seacliff Art Workshop and Kwanzaa - the Afrikan Shop in conjunction with Wellington City Council and the City Gallery. The aim is to promote New Zealand poetry to the wider public through a series of lively readings taking place in the winter months in Wellington. Each year an anthology of the readers is produced and is edited/compiled by Mark Pirie and published by the Earl of Seacliff Art Workshop.
This year's readings are a tribute to Manchester rock band Oasis.
