Join Our Discussion

For The Love of Bees invites writers to contribute informative, inspiring and innovative words to be featured on our website and social media. This may include, but is not limited to, poetry, critical writing, hard journalism, soft journalism, creative writing or photo essays. 

It's an opportunity for you to collaborate with us. Over the next two years we have the chance to work together: learning, unlearning and re-learning how to make our city a safe place for bees. From food creation, soil rehabilitation, atmospheric consideration and social participation we ask you to imagine the possibilities with us and share them with us using words.

We welcome pieces that inform the public on community initiatives, ecological issues, creative approaches to sustainability, insights, observations or just things you love about Auckland. Let your words spark our imagination, inspire us to take action, to create a city we want to live in.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go.

-Dr. Seuss
