AC Student Hailed as One of NZ’s Top Teen Authors

We’re proud to announce that Aquinas College has a published author! Two stories by Year 13’s Mila Laurie feature in the just-released “ReDraft 2023: The Report,” a collection of Aotearoa’s best teenage writing.

Just 119 of 500-odd creative writing entries were chosen for the publication’s 2023 version, making Mila’s double-selection even more outstanding. A panel of award-winning NZ writers judged both of her pieces to be “definite winners,” and said that Mila’s writing “had a great voice.”

Read them for yourself – we now have two copies of ReDraft 2023 in the Library. Congratulations Mila! We can’t wait to see what you’ll write next.
