Since 2011, we’ve been publishing punchy arts and cultural commentary in Aotearoa New Zealand, from personal essays to criticism and reviews to interviews and analysis. We make videos and podcasts and produce unique live events, which are broadcast over the summer on RNZ.
Our kaupapa is to offer a platform for a wide range of experiences, ideas, and voices – including talented emerging writers. Please see our Submissions page
if you have an idea to pitch. We’d love to hear from you. Thanks to our supporters - and in particular, Creative New Zealand - we offer editorial support and some payment for submissions.
Never miss a Punch!
