Summer Memoir creative writing contest

2 January 2024

Category: College and members


While the College celebrates its 50th year, we are collecting memories and accounts of the College鈥檚 growth and change. In the October issue of GP Voice we published reflections of two GPs who had practised in Tonga and 麻豆视频入口. These professional journeys are treasured examples of how much general practice has evolved during that time and how much is yet to be addressed and improved.

As the temperature rises and Christmas begins to brighten general practices with garlands and baubles, we are encouraging you to use the upcoming holiday season to reflect on your professional journeys through the medium of creative writing. All members are cordially invited to participate in the Summer Memoir contest, and write essays, short stories, poems or songs (maximum 2000 words) in English, te reo M膩ori, or any other language in which you feel most comfortable (please include a translation).

We want to hear about your experiences, both your struggles and achievements, that link with the College and its 50 years of transformation. Please send your submissions to the editorial team at by 20 January 2024. The best submissions will receive a copy of Dr Glennis Mafi鈥檚 memoir and will be published in GP Voice.
