Applications are now open for Te Papa Tupu 2018 for six aspiring Māori writers.
Te Papa Tupu is a writing programme developed by the Māori Literature Trust and organised by Huia Publishers.
Chosen writers will spend six months working alongside a mentor to develop their manuscript and improve their writing skills, all to meet the end goal of having a publishable manuscript. Writers will also receive financial support, attend workshops and a national writers festival, and become part of a writing community.
