The Southern Cross Novel Challenge, or SoCNoC, is a yearly event held every June. The southern hemisphere’s version of National Novel Writing Month, June (comprising thirty days total, including one long weekend) was selected as the month for this challenge because it is considered the equivalent of the northern hemisphere’s November in terms of weather and temperatures. This challenge is hosted by Kiwi Writers, a New Zealand-based writing group which houses members primarily based in New Zealand and Australia but stretching as far as the United States and Canada. SoCNoC is the largest writing competition in the Southern Hemisphere.
