Ella Scott Fleming is the winner of the 2022 Metro Deadly Ponies Scholarship!

Dec 17, 2022 etc

Ella Scott-Fleming was born in 1991 in Ponsonby. She grew up in Grey Lynn and is a graduate of Elam School in Fine Arts where she focused on sculpture where her writing practice began. Since then she has worked in film as a props maker, art galleries as a technician and most recently in construction as a builder.

Currently she is doing a PgDip in Journalism at AUT in the hopes of becoming a court reporter. 


I’m so excited to announce our second Metro Deadly Ponies scholarship recipient is Ella Scott Fleming, an Elam graduate currently training to be a journalist. She’ll be writing about something we can’t talk about yet, but that we can’t wait to read.

It’s our pleasure to continue to support this important scholarship, giving opportunity to new and local writers with something to say that can inspire us all. We’re thrilled to see this year’s winner, Ella, submit a topic that moved and intrigued us – safe to say we look forward to reading this piece in 2023. Thank you to everyone that submitted an entry this year, you are a talented lot that we can’t wait to see more from.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
