"A stated objective of Tauranga Writers, New Zealand’s longest-standing writing group, is to support and encourage emerging writers. To this end, in 2012 the group established the Write Off Line series of anthologies to provide a vehicle for teen writers to publish their work, and the equivalent Beyond This series of anthologies for intermediate school students.
While we would like to have published every student, sadly that wasn’t possible. But no one went away empty-handed, as every entrant received individual feedback and suggestions for improving their work. Naturally, we didn’t do this without help, and we’d like to thank our panel of judges and our fellow Tauranga Writers members for their valuable input.
