Online MENTORING

We offered young New Zealand writers the opportunity to give voice to their thoughts and ideas about Lockdown 2020.

 

Here are their responses in their own words and voices.

 

The poems and prose pieces were developed with the guidance of Write On mentors through prompts, workshops and/or online feedback.

 

Voice recording was supported by Vox Pop Community app and Plains FM 96.9. Click here to listen to compilation programmes of the readings produced by Plains FM.

 

Thank you the Copyright Licensing New Zealand Contestable Fund Grant 2020.
