STELLA STEVENS – National Schools Poetry Award

Congratulations to Stella Stevens As well as being flat out directing the school production, it was announced this morning that Stella has won a literary prize as a finalist in the National Schools Poetry Award for her poem I am Waiting For You 
She was due to head up to Wellington for a workshop but it has clashed with the production.
We are super proud of her and the judges enjoyed her poem stating that:
Stella Stevens’ poem ‘I Am Waiting For You’ does not shy away from being a New Zealand poem and I love that. Every local detail she uses contributes to that scene-setting element, as well as being a poem that addresses environmental issues – specifically the destruction of native bush by the possum population. That broader layer of meaning gives the poem great depth.
