Back to programme


Each year at WORD, we’re inviting a leading literary journal to set up shop and produce an issue on-site during the festival. Submissions come from our workshop programme, and from visiting writers, including you.

In 2022 our magazine in residence is takahē. Drop in each day to meet their dynamic editorial team and get a peek behind the scenes at a literary magazine. See them editing and laying out the limited-edition zine, with artists and writers present to show their process, plus short talks from special guests.

On Sunday at 4pm in Foundation, help to launch the finished product with readings and toasts.

Submit your poetry and short fiction (up to 1000 words) in te reo or English in person, or via email at
