Student Success in Literature

The English department is celebrating the success of Sofia Drew and Giselle den Breems. Sofia and Giselle have had poetry published in the most recent edition of Starling, one of New Zealand's most well-respected literary journals.

To put this success into perspective, poets whose work is published in Starling are taught in our Senior English and Scholarship English lessons. In this issue, Sofia and Giselle's work sits alongside names like Jordan Hamel, Lily Holloway, and Cadence Chung, poets who have had books published this year, and Nathan Joe, author of recent Auckland Theatre Company production Scenes from a Yellow Peril.

You can read the issue online here. Ex-student Loretta Riach (2014-2018) has also had work published in this issue.

Please congratulate Sofia (below left) and Giselle (below right) if you see them around - it is a huge achievement and a marker of what excellent poets they are.
