Description

Ora Nui is a new literary journal showcasing contemporary work from established and emerging Maori writers. Maori writers are now developing work in a whole range of genres. As well as traditional forms like poetry, prose and fiction, script writing for theatre, television and film is becoming a much more important part of our literature. Ora Nui aims to give space for these different writing forms.


“Maori writing is located across a wide range of publications. I wanted to gather as much Maori writing as possible to see if there is a distinctive Maori voice The collection shows that while our traditions are important to us, Maori writers are embracing their contemporary experiences. So some of the new material is less distinctively Maori and challenges the existing notions of what constitutes Maori writing." --Anton Blank, editor.
