Laura Borrowdale - Editor in chief

She likes grubby jokes, but tries to keep it classy. She only occasionally succeeds. Win her over with writing that is clever, original and has a little bit of sass.

Oliver Rabbett - Visual editor

He loves imagery so much, he's covered in it. Send him something he's tempted to get inked. He goes for clean lines, minimalist design and a wee bit of raunch.

Our Editorial Team

As well as Laura and Oliver, Aotearotica has an editorial team who are involved in selecting work that represents a wide range of genders, sexualities and perspectives. The team collectively values high quality writing and art, and strongly encourages submissions from those representing communities who are ordinarily underrepresented in this style of work.
