Cultural fund
In 2022, $75,000 is available to support strategic projects that demonstrate New Zealand publishing sector growth. The amount applicants apply for is up to them, with the number of successful recipients varying each year depending on the individual merits of the applications received.
Successful projects will have clearly defined and measurable project outcomes that align with the Cultural Fund's objectives, including projects that:
  • Develop the professional skills of writers, including those who write for an education audience
  • Seek to grow export markets for New Zealand published content
  • Demonstrate innovation in the creation and distribution of NZ published content
  • Use online platforms to enhance the profile of New Zealand publishing and/or published content, including to international/export markets

You will see from the style the eNews consists largely of links.
Our preferred form is  a few lines at most, with a link or an email contact for further information.
At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews, but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.
If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have. 
Relevant job advertisements are welcome - there is no charge.
