Landfall is New Zealand’s foremost and longest-running arts and literary journal. It showcases new fiction and poetry, as well as biographical and critical essays and cultural commentary. Landfall also features art portfolios in full colour and reviews of the latest New Zealand books.

Each issue brims with a mix of vital new work by this country’s top new and more established writer’s latest reviews of New Zealand book as well as stunning new writing from established literary heavyweights and thrilling new voices – the work promises to range from the wry, ludic and lyrical, to gripping body horror as social commentary, which is at once comic and unsettling. Landfall also features art portfolios in full colour.

Landfall 243 features celebrated New Zealand writers such as Vincent O’Sullivan, David Eggleton, Emma Neale, Janis Freegard, Tim Upperton, Erik Kennedy and Rebecca Hawkes, and showcases artworks by Sione Monū, Kim Pieters and James R. Ford. This issue also announces the 2022 winner of the Charles Brasch Young Writers’ Essay Competition.
