Letters to the Editor

Craccum welcomes and encourages feedback and public debate, whether it is serious or tongue-in-cheek. However, we do not encourage and will not tolerate hate speech of any kind.”

Provided we receive enough letters per week, we will publish them in the following issue. As such, letters must be received at before 12pm on the Wednesday for publication next week. Pseudonyms are fine, but all letters must include your real name, address and telephone number—these will not be printed.”

Please note that letters cannot exceed 250 words, and that the Editor(s) reserves the right to edit, abridge or decline letters without explanation.


Craccum is one of New Zealand’s largest and most influential tertiary student publication. It is one of the few A4 tertiary magazines in New Zealand to be printed weekly in full colour throughout giving maximum exposure for all concerned.

For over 90 years Craccum has had a style which is independent, challenging and forthright. Retaining a sense of humour and current with youth culture, Craccum is the essential coffee table magazine in every student home and the ultimate lecture read.

We have 24 Issues scheduled this year and can print up to 10,000 copies per week just to cater to student demand. Craccum is then distributed free to all University of Auckland Campuses to a tertiary market of nearly 40,000.

Craccum is printed on an 80gsm Stock, but still has black and white, as well as full colour, ad options available. DLE Inserts can also be inserted for $150 per 1000 inserts (min 4000 inserts).
