New and Exciting!
To kick off a bumper 2017 season of competitions, we are running our Inaugural Essay Competition.
This is the perfect opportunity to meld your creative and your academic brain. A sort of left right merger. We are looking for works with a clear point of view on any topic relating to arts and/or culture in Aotearoa New Zealand or the broader Pacific. As most writers have something to say about something then choosing a topic should be the easy bit. The fun bit is the chance to present a rational and logical argument that methodically analyses and evaluates your chosen topic.
If you are unsure about the structure of an essay then I recommend that you contact Mr Google. When I entered ‘helpful hints for writing an essay’ I was flooded with possible reads offering tips and examples.
Give yourself a break from the poems and stories, have a go at writing an essay.
Or, if you already have a couple on hand, dust them off and send them in. Erin (our judge) has cleared a space in her diary and is looking forward to reading your work. Don’t forget the 15 February deadline. Entry form and rules can be found on our Competitions page.
The holiday break is the ideal time to kick-back and think about stuff. And we want to know what you are thinking about. – Go on, share.
