In 2023 Write On School for Young Writers turned 30 and we published Issue 60 of Write On magazine. 

We tracked down some of our past writers to find out what they are up to now and what they remember most about their time with our school.


Then we paired them with one of our current young writers.

Our young writers selected a piece written back then and responded to it now.

On each page, you will find:

  • INSPIRATION: A brand new piece of writing plus the piece that inspired it.

  • CONNECTION: An interview between past and present young writers

  • WRITING ON: What our past students are up to now with their writing.


We thank Plains FM for their support in recording these voices.

Thank you to Copyright Licensing NZ who provided a grant that allowed us to digitally archive 30 years of magazines and to put this project together.
