Summons your muse! The Word Café Raglan writing competition closes on Friday 2 June.
The competition is open to all school students from year 0 to 13, and any adult who has purchased a ticket to a Word Café session.
Poems, short stories, and illustrated pieces of writing are all eligible, and there are great prizes up for grabs.
For full details of the categories, prizes, and how to enter go to: www.wordcaferaglan.co.nz/word-cafe-2017-writing-competition/
The winners will be announced on Sunday 2 July at 2:30pm, before the official closing of the Word Café festival.
Word Cafe Raglan 2017 writers and readers festival will be held at the Raglan Town Hall from 7pm on Saturday 30 June to 4pm on Sunday 2 July 2017. The crammed programme includes a spoken poetry showcase, an evening extravaganza and open mic night, book launches, author Q&As, a writing workshop and, of course, the writing competition.
And as any established writer will tell you, you don’t need to wait for your muse to show up to begin. Just sit down, ready your laptop or pick up your pen, and write. We look forward to reading the results!
Tickets to Word Café Raglan are $100 for a weekend pass. Door sales to individual sessions will be available as space allows. To book your ticket or find out more go to www.wordcaferaglan.co.nz
