Signals Young Writers Awards 2022

For the second year running Michael King Writers Centre is excited to be able to offer an opportunity to young writers in Aotearoa to win cash rewards for their work along with having their work published in Signals 2022 – our journal that showcases the work of the up and coming talent in our country.

We are receiving entries in Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction and Poetry. A finalist will be selected for each division. Each finalist will receive a $150 prize. The overall winner selected from the three finalists will win an additional $150.

Entries close on Friday 29th July 2022 and the selections are expected to be announced in early September.

We are grateful for the support of Penguin Random House in running these awards.
