More paid opportunities coming your way

For everyone who enters, we offer extra paid writing gigs up to $200

By entering the competition, you will join New Zealand's largest and highest paid community of young adult comedy writers. Every week, we offer this community exclusive paid gigs that will almost definitely distract you from your study.

How it works

We send gigs directly to your inbox, from $10 for one-liners, to $200 for overall high performance in the comedy comp across the year, and everything in between.

How do I make $200?

At the end of every year we select 5 Guest Contributors from this community to write an entire week's worth of one-liners, which will be posted to LearnCoach's social media over summer. These Guest Contributors will be chosen based on performance in the competition over the year - mainly the categories 'number of shortlisted jokes' and 'number of entries'. You don't have to have won the competition to be chosen. Those chosen will be paid $200 each.

So enter the comp, win some cash and join a community of people just like you: people who would prefer to make fun of NCEA than ever dare to be seen to take it seriously.
