The short story has always been at the heart of Māori literature; many of our greatest writers’ most memorable works have aimed to capture lives in just a few pages. That tradition continues today, with a vibrant range of Māori short fiction captivating readers in recent years. Join Tīhema Baker (Raukawa te Au ki te Tonga, Ātiawa ki Whakarongotai, Ngāti Toa Rangatira) Emma Hislop (Kāi Tahu), whose collection of short stories Ruin and Other Stories won the Hubert Church Prize for Fiction at the 2024 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards, and Airana Ngarewa (Ngāti Ruanui, Ngā Rauru, Ngāruahine) as they discuss the art of the short story with Jordan Tricklebank (Ngāti Maniapoto).
