Writing Competition

We are looking for the best short stories and poems Southland students have to offer!

Market South is once again offering the chance for Southland students to have their writing published in front of an estimated readership of 200,000 in Southland’s annual Culture & Lifestyle magazine, The Life.

The Life is all about what Southland and Southlanders have to offer and we want to showcase the best writing from our talented high school students. The short stories and poems can be about any topic, as long as we deem it suitable for publication.

Entries must be received before 4th August 2017, and include the author’s name, age, year level and school. Please email entries to briar@marketsouth.co.nz. Winners will be notified by email and their work will be published in edition five of The Life, due out November 2017. Authors of published entries will receive a copy of The Life, and 5 copies for their school.
