Research project to improve adult literacy

A four-year Wanganui-based research project is providing invaluable information to help improve New Zealand adult literacy standards.
Massey University Associate Professor Frank Sligo, who is leading the $2 million project, said it focuses on adult literacy and employment in Wanganui and aims to create new employment opportunities through higher literacy standards.

Hi, Off the Topic...
How does one get his Graphic Novel published on NZ? I am writing and illustrating a 220+ Crime/Drama Graphic Novel and have heard there is no funding for such literature in NZ. Have you, or do know of any NZ publisher who has published one in the past, apart from the funny ones like Footrot flats etc.
