We hope that this news will be a bright spot in an uncertain time – the smallest thing that might help keep you on course. We are currently accepting submissions for our tenth issue. Starling has been running for an amazing five years, and that feels worth celebrating, especially given the circumstances. Submissions will close as usual on April 20, and although our own situations have changed as editors (working from home / home with kids) we will be trying to keep things moving at normal pace and deliver our best issue yet. For that we need your help!
If you are a New Zealander under 25 years old, send your new creative writing to us. Any genre, but write what counts. What is it you want to say? See our submission guidelines for how to format and send in your work.
If you know a young writer who may be interested in submitting something, please encourage them to do so and share this news. It might be just what they need.
