Introducing the Essays section

Those of you who are particularly sharp-eyed will have noticed that what was once the Cultural Studies section has been renamed Essays. This has been done largely for the sake of clarity, for the term ‘cultural studies’ can be a little opaque. The shift is also designed to signal clearly the sort of writing we would like to promote and share with you: works of creative non-fiction and cultural criticism that engage with culture or cultural practice in New Zealand and the South Pacific, with the term ‘culture’ being read in a broad and inclusive way.

I look forward to reading your submissions and am happy to answer any queries. You can find more specific guidelines on content and length under ‘Submit’.
