 'After reading Hiwa I felt elated, as if I had just been in conversation all night with some of the funniest, smartest and wisest people around. This anthology sparkles, delights and moves. It gives insight into the many faces of who we are as Maori, coming together as a very satisfying whole.' (Briar Grace-Smith)

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.
