#MatarikiMash – Matariki wordplay for Mondays!

Matariki Mash

On Mondays for four weeks from 26 June, we wish to test your imagination and your skill with language! Inspired by the New Zealand Book Council’s #ramereshorts weekly Twitter competitions, we’ll be running a special word challenge on Twitter for the 4 weeks of Matariki, every Monday and Wednesday.

We’ll post up two te reo Māori kupu those mornings, as well as one English word. All you need to do is bring your word play skills and include all three words in a tweet-length short story, together with the #MatarikiMash hashtag! See

Many thanks go to the New Zealand Book Council, for letting us borrow their idea:
