Write On magazine is full of poems and stories by young writers aged 6–18. It’s a great read, a superb resource for teachers and a welcome addition to any school, community or family library.
Write On is the longest-running literary journal of writing by and for young people in Āotearoa New Zealand. We celebrate children’s writing and provide an opportunity for publication. The magazine is published twice yearly, in June and December.
