New writing from IIML at VUW and the MA in Creative Writing at University of Auckland
Every year RNZ Drama produces a collection of short stories from the graduating MA writers at the International Institute of Modern Letters, Victoria University Wellington.
This year, 2019, RNZ is pleased to collaborate with The University of Auckland and its Masters in Creative Writing students to extend this collection and showcase even more new work.
The collection will be broadcast in 4 parts across the second half of 2019. All the stories will eventually appear here in this online collection.
