Brought to you by Hamilton Book Month and Waikato Museum.
Bursting with bright colours, magical symbols and cross-cultural characters, Maiangi Waitai’s exhibition Ātea-ā-Rangi—Interstellar is all about exploring the mysteries of the universe.
Visit Waikato Museum and explore the exhibition, then respond to the visual storytelling with your own poems and short stories. Base your written competition entry on any aspect that captures your imagination.
One entry per person, which can be prose or poetry. Entries to be received by 13 August.
Winner and runners up will be invited to read at the National Poetry Day Open Mic event when the competition results will be announced.
