The 2005 E Tuhi! Get Writing! Awards for Maori Writers has once again generated compelling pieces of fiction from established and new Maori writers. Patricia Grace (2005 Montana Deutz Medal for Fiction and Poetry winner) and Keri Hulme (Booker Prize winner) had the difficult task of selecting from over 300 entries this year. The E tuhi! Awards for Maori Writers have come to be recognized as a major stepping stone for emerging Maori writers. The collection speaks of the diversity of contemporary Maori experience in New Zealand and overseas. Fresh and inspiring, Huia Short Stories 6 is definitely worth the risk of the unknown!
