Mayhem (ISSN 2382-0322) is a literary journal showcasing creative writing from contributors in and from Aotearoa New Zealand.
Mayhem Literary Journal emerged from Tracey Slaughter and Catherine Chidgey's creative writing programme at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. Since launching in March 2014, Mayhem has become a feature of Waikato's literary scene, a place for new and established literary presences to explore and establish their voices.
We love writing that is strong, alive, urgent, dynamic, risky, human, informed. Something that celebrates the mayhem in all of us.
Mayhem acknowledges the Maaori people as the traditional guardians of Aotearoa, and recognise their continuing connection to the land, sea, sky and culture.
