Winning words from the University of Otago’s creative writing competition

Thursday 10th December @ 10pm
Replayed Sunday 13th @ 8pm

In 2020, the University of Otago held a creative writing competition.

With four categories – student poetry, student fiction, staff poetry and staff fiction – it was an opportunity for keen writers across all of the University’s campuses to have a go.

In keeping with the disconnect of lockdown, the writing prompt was “Only connect”.

In these podcasts, the competition winners present their work.
