Cloud Ink Press is pleased to announce the next submission period is now open and will close on 10 December 2019. We invite graduates of the Auckland University of Technology Masters of Creative Writing Programme to submit work.

Provide a two-page (maximum) synopsis which summarises the plot, main characters, themes, word count and intended audience of your manuscript. Also a paragraph about yourself and your writing. 

Please also address these points in your submission:


  • To what level and in what way has your work been assessed or critiqued?
