"A huge thank you to all those that contributed from the amazing young illustrators and storytellers, Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington School of Languages and Cultures, and our partners at Toitoi: A Journal for Young Writers and Artists. This wouldn't have been possible without your dedication!"

Toitoi – Latin America Special Issue

Toitoi showcases stories, poems and art about the vibrant cultures of Latin America produced by young New Zealanders.

All the written pieces have been translated into languages of the region, creating a multilingual app in English, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.

The app features interactive text and audio features that allows readers to listen to the stories and poems in translation, tap to hear individual words and spellings and even record their own narration.
