Since launching in 2014, Mayhem Literary Journal has become a feature of Aotearoa New Zealand’s literary scene, and a place for new and established literary presences to explore and establish their voices.
The work of Mayhem now extends beyond the annual creative writing journal of the same name edited by Tracey Slaughter. Our work includes the Sodium Glow literary readings, stage productions (including The Longest Drink in Town), and the publication of new writers' creative writing collections.
As a publisher, Mayhem's aim is to print works by bold new writers, celebrate literature and the arts, and foster the next generation of great creatives.
