An essential new anthology of our best Maori short fiction.

Kia hiwa ra ki tenei tuku,
kia hiwa ra ki tena tuku!
E, ko te paenga pakipoto
ka rewa i te pae pukapuka
nekeneke mai, nukunuku mai
ki tenei huihuinga kaituhi Maori,
ki tenei pukenga whakaaro tuatini, hi!

— From the Kupu Whakamihi by Darryn Joseph

Hiwa is a vibrant, essential collection of contemporary Maori short stories, featuring twenty-seven writers working in English or te reo Maori. The writers range from famous names and award winners – Patricia Grace, Witi Ihimaera, Whiti Hereaka, Becky Manawatu, Zeb Nicklin – to emerging voices like Shelley Burne-Field, Jack Remiel Cottrell, Anthony Lapwood and Colleen Maria Lenihan.

A showcase of contemporary talent, Hiwa includes biographical introductions for each writer’s work, and explores the range of styles and subjects in the flourishing world of Maori fiction.

Named for Hiwa-i-te-rangi, the ninth star of Matariki, signifying vigorous growth and dreams of the year ahead, this anthology reveals the flourishing world of Maori writing today, in Aotearoa and beyond.
