Contemporary Indigenous Writing Skins is a unique collection of short stories full of passion warmth and humour. It reveals the rich diversity of styles and themes explored by critically acclaimed contemporary Indigenous writers in Australia New Zealand Canada and the United States. The voices in Skins are fresh and gritty expressing a wealth of different cultural experiences and realities. Co-published with Kegedonce Press (Canada) New Zealand, skins is an exciting new addition to Indigenous literature in print. Among celebrated names like Maria Campbell (Halfbreed), Alootook Ipellie (Arctic Dreams and Nightmares), Sally Morgan (My Place), Patricia Grace (Potiki), Sherman Alexie (Smoke Signals), Linda Hogan (Seeing through the Sun and Mean Spirit), Thomas King (Green Grass, Running Water), Louise Erdrich (Tracks) and Witi Ihimaera (Bulibasha), skins also presents some of the brightest emerging Indigenous talent from around the world.

And, as these pages show, they are producing some of the most inspiring beautiful and provocative writing anywhere.
