Tūhono: A journal of poetry by Wellington Children and Teens

Tūhono is an annual poetry journal by young Wellington writers, aged from 5 to 18. It is produced and published by Wellington City Libraries.

Our kaupapa

Our kaupapa is to give all young people in Wellington the opportunity to have their work published and be part of the library's collection. Every poem submitted that meets the submission guidelines is included in Tūhono.

Tūhono is a uniquely Wellington collection of writing, capturing the thoughts and emotions of children and teens from all over the city and across time.

How can I contribute to Tūhono?

Once a year we accept submissions from young writers to include in this journal. Submissions for 2022 are open now until December 14th. Know someone who might be interested? Send them the link below!
