Bookrapt Bookmonth Presents - Tau Ju Wri Mo
Tauranga Junior Writers Month is almost here! Visit this page during the month of November 2020 to access writing prompts from local authors. We can’t wait to see what you will write!
Bookrapt invites young writers, or those new to writing, to meet a different author from the bay and around Aotearoa each day during the month of November. In 3 minute vlogs, starting with Bookrapt’s patron Phyllis Johnston, authors will present tips and tasks that have helped them in their own writing journeys. Participants will also be given an opportunity to submit a short piece of writing each day to go into the draw for book prizes; the overall winner will win an ‘author in school’ for the school of their choice.
Submit your writing to us, and you’ll go in the draw to win an author visit to your class at school!*
*The school must be located within either the Tauranga City Council or the Western Bay District Council to be eligible to win.

CALL FOR STUDENT BOOK REVIEWERS
We are currently calling for students who would like to write book reviews for the New Zealand Poetry Society.
These micro-reviews must be 250-500 words long, excluding quotations. Selected students will be able to keep their review book as payment. All micro-reviews will be published on the NZPS website. At the end of the year, we will also pick the best student review to receive a prize fit for a writer.
If you are interested, please email Emma Shi at firstname.lastname@example.org with your place of study as well as a sample of your work.
