Outside the Square is proud to present Write Here, Write Now!, the first publication from our high school writing workshops at Henderson High School and Rutherford College.
Writing teachers Paula Morris, Ruby Porter and Rachel O'Connor delivered a five-week programme with pupils from years 9 to 13.
The workshops focused on creative, nonfiction writing based on students’ personal experiences in the Henderson-Massey Local Board area. The best work has been compiled into a visually striking anthology designed by local design studio Lamington.
“These short pieces are intense, imaginative and often funny, exploring the streets, playgrounds and people of the area,” says Paula Morris, who selected and edited students' work for publication.“They reveal the diverse points of view of the young writers and the way they connect with and make sense of the city.”
“I’m particularly proud that this year we focussed on youth and nurturing the next generation of west Auckland writers.”
Shane Henderson, Chair of the Henderson-Massey Local Board.
