Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 4. April 27, 1959
Victoria has decided to hold a competition for those in the university who consider themselves literary minded. The competition will be open to bonafide students and there will be two sections: (a) poetry, (b) short story.
The writers of the winning works will be invited to the Festival. Three worthwhile prizes will be offered: One for the best poem; one for the best short story; one for the best contribution from the remaining entries (either poetry or short story).
Three adjudicators (two staff members and one non-staff member of the university) will be appointed for the competition and the three best poems and the three best short stories will be sent to the Arts Festival.
Please note that if you are unable to be present at the festival a competent reader can be arranged to read those works sent.
It is hoped that there will be plenty of ms. sent in and please—so that it can be read—type double spacing. If you can't get it typed please write it legibly, one side of the page and double spaced.
All contributions will be considered as potential material for "Experiment," which is the Literary Societies' magazine. Copy should be sent to Editor, "Experiment," Literary Society, c/- Students' Association, P.O. Box 196, Wellington.
Also please note that the entries must reach the Editor before June 30, and they must be signed by the writer.
