We're thrilled to announce that we're partnering with Verb Festival for the 2019 Micro-Residencies, and launching issue six during part 1 of the LitCrawl on Saturday night!


As part of Verb Festival, Sweet Mammalian editors Hannah, Rebecca, and Nikki-Lee will also talk about the life of the journal's physical form at the All About Zines event on Saturday afternoon - where you might just be able to score yourself a cheeky pre-launch copy of the issue 6 zine!

We know how hard it is to find time and space to write, and how important it is to feel like part of a community of writers and artists. The Micro-Residencies are designed to offer a tiny gem of a weekend to let these writers run wild in Wellington. The Micro-Residents are hosted by brilliant art galleries over the Festival weekend, Sat 9 - Sun 10 November.

The Sweet Mammalian x Verb Micro-Residents selected for 2019, and the galleries they'll be writing within, are:

Jackson Nieuwland - Play Station

Miriama Gemmell - Bowen Galleries 

Chris Holdaway - Bartley & Co

Jasmine Gallagher - Meanwhile 

Sam Duckor-Jones - Millers O’Brien
