The editorial committee reviews
submitted manuscripts and reserves the right to choose or reject works
as it sees fit. The committee will acknowledge the receipt of each manuscript
and will inform authors/artists of the acceptance or rejection of their
The responsibility for originality
of work is the author's. Each published electronic document will then show
a copyright symbol, the author's name and the year of the item's first
publication. Authors/artists should provide a copyright date if this is
not the first publication of the work. Work for which the author does not
hold copyright, but which has become part of the author's work through
appropriation (e.g., photographs, audio-visual material, etc. used to supplement
a poem or interview), should have its copyright owner properly acknowledged
and, wherever possible, the copyright owner's permission ought to be sought
by the author. Authors should do their best to acknowledge their sources.
Typewritten or hand-written
material is acceptable if double-spaced with ample margins. Authors can
also submit their manuscripts as email text or HTML sourcecode. Images
can be submitted as email attachments in gif or jpeg formats. Please try
to keep the size of these images down, as bandwidth is very limited in
New Zealand and severely limited in the Pacific Islands. Audio and video
images should be in commonly used format and, again, authors should be
particularly wary of the limited bandwidth available. Nevertheless, authors
and artists are encouraged to make the most of the new medium. Any item,
option open to authors.
