Our friends at New Zealand Review of Books Pukapuka Aotearoa have been publishing in-depth + excellent reviews of New Zealand writing since 1991. Due to funding loss, the current issue will be their last.
In a post on their Facebook page, they write:
It is with enormous sorrow that the Board of Peppercorn Press and the Co-editors of New Zealand Review of Books Pukapuka Aotearoa must inform our contributors, subscribers, advertisers, friends & lovers, and other supporters that our Creative New Zealand funding has been discontinued. This means that we are unable to continue publishing and the Summer issue (issue 128, publishing December 2019) will be our last.
Thank you so much for your support. We are very proud of the work we did together and the contribution we have made to Aotearoa's literary landscape and culture for almost thirty years., since our first issue appeared in 1991.
We are endeavouring to find a new home for our online archive, and for our teen review site, Hooked on NZ Books. Our Givealittle page is intended to fundraise for our final expenses and for help with ongoing maintenance of online sites. We intend to accept donations through this page until 31 December 2019.
