How to ensure Capsule can keep telling the stories that matter? Donate to our PressPatron!

Capsule is for Kiwi women, by Kiwi women. We’re your daily dose of smart reads and relatable rants to uplift, encourage and inspire. We tell real stories with honesty, courage and kindness.

While we need to normalise paying for media, for now, Capsule is free for anyone to read, as we want to ensure the stories of our incredible Kiwi wahine we tell are accessible to everyone.

However, we also do like paying rent! Along with clicking on our sponsored content stories, liking, commenting on and sharing our social media posts and our stories, and signing up to our newsletter, you can also make a one-off or regular contribution by clicking on the pink banner below to donate to our PressPatron. We appreciate every contribution!

By supporting Capsule you will be ensuring the stories of NZ women continue to be told. They’re stories that deserve to be shared. 

Thank you,

Kelly, Emma and Alice

About us:

Once upon a time…

…We were all at the helm of some of New Zealand’s best magazines. We all loved our jobs fiercely; magazines, writing and editing were our passions, our lifeblood, and our livelihoods. We all had our dream jobs until our company folded during the 2020 Covid19 pandemic, taking with it 237 jobs. After a few weeks of tears, too many carbs and so much wine that the neighbours judged us on recycling day, we all realised what we wanted to do – write. So Capsule was born, a site for the savvy, strong, intelligent and stylish woman who wants to know what’s happening, what’s trending, what’s new, and what’s worth talking about. A true capsule collection, we aim to deliver a site which will be the ultimate curated collection of everything our audience needs to help them feel successful, informed and entertained.
