As part of the 2021 Verb Readers and Writers festival, Wellington Zinefest created a new project, titled COVEN: A Collaborative Zine.


COVEN is a zine series which brings together work by creatives in Aotearoa which explored the theme of witchcraft and the coven. Contributors shared poetry, short stories, illustrations, photography, spells and other work.


Originally intended to be one zine, the number and diversity of contributions we received led us to split the zine into four parts. Each of the four zines is loosely dedicated to an element - Fire, Earth, Water and Air.
