We believe in supporting beginner writers, so each year NZ Writers College hosts and sponsors a national writing competition, closing on 30 September.
Below are our archives of the NZ Writers College Annual Short Story Competition. Click the link you wish to view and enjoy reading.
You can also download our free anthology (by clicking the cover below) that showcases the winning stories from the past eight years (2010-2018).
We also run another free writing contest – the My Writing Journey Competition – with three deadlines per year.
The only way to improve your writing is to write, so get those fingers tapping on the keyboard and send in your entries!
For any questions, please contact Nichola at firstname.lastname@example.org.
