Sponge is an online journal for science fiction and speculative fiction, based in the post-apocalpytic city of Christchurch, New Zealand. We publish short stories and poetry from NZ, Australian, and Pacific writers, with a particular focus on new and emerging writers.

Sponge is currently closed for submissions.

We just went live with our fourth issue of the journal and are taking a break from submissions for now.

You can subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of this page, or if you any questions please contact [email protected].

Special thanks to Ivan for designing and building this website and to Ben for coming up with the name.
