Toitoi invites young writers and artists ages 5-13 who are curious, courageous and creative to submit original material in English or te reo Māori that reflects the cultures and experiences of life in New Zealand.
Email your writing and/or art to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, age, school and a parent or teacher’s name and contact details.
We will be back in touch with you within four weeks of the submission deadline to let you know if your work has been accepted for publication. We can’t wait to hear from you.
