Journal of New Zealand Literature

The Journal of New Zealand Literature (JNZL) is the only international, fully peer-reviewed journal devoted to New Zealand literary studies.

JNZL, which is published annually, carries scholarly and critical essays on all aspects of New Zealand literature and cultural studies. We welcome submissions on any aspect of New Zealand literature in English. It also reviews books of critical interest in the field of New Zealand literary studies.

JNZL is edited within the English Programme at Victoria University of Wellington. It was established in 1983, and was edited until 2014 by staff of the School of Arts at the University of Waikato, Hamilton.
