PANZ is delighted to announce the successful recipients of the 2023 Creative New Zealand National Publishing Internships Initiative (colloquially known as the Intern Programme).

In the new year Trinity Thompson-Browne (Ngāti Kahungunu, Muaūpoko) will intern with HUIA Publisher in Wellington, while in Auckland, Cadence Galt heads to Massey University Press and Jemma Morrison to Bateman Books for the six-month internship.

The Intern Programme, administered by PANZ, provides paid internship opportunities each year for three new graduates of the Whitireia New Zealand publishing course to enter the industry and is highly coveted by both students and publishers alike.

The programme has produced some impressive results in past years with many publishers choosing to offer the interns full-time positions at the end of the programme, and a number of former interns now hold senior positions in publishing companies.

Odessa Owens, Senior Tutor, Publishing at Whitireia was thrilled with the results. “This programme offers our graduates an amazing opportunity, and we’re so pleased for the 2024 interns.”

Congratulations to all the successful students and publishers.
