Poetry Submission

Poetry submission

Welcome to the submissions page for Tūhono – a journal of poetry by and for young Wellingtonians. This year’s theme is "Whakaata | Reflection." The aim of this journal is to allow young people to have their work published and made available for the whole community to enjoy – this is not a competition and all entries that meet the guidelines will be included in the publication, along with your preferred name and age.

Here are some guidelines to help you:
  • Submissions will close 31 October 2021
  • Submissions are open to all Wellingtonians between the ages of 5 and 18
  • Submissions may be in English and/or te reo Māori
  • Your submission should not exceed one A4 page typed with 1.5 line spacing
  • Please submit only one entry per person
  • Provide a contact email address if you would like to be notified when Tūhono is published on Wellington City Libraries' OverDrive platform
