Summary
  • Writing the Pacific is a new anthlogy of stories and poems that re-envision the myths, traditions and lived reality of 'Pacific-ness'. The voices in some of the poems and stories are marked with sorrow - for children who have moved away, for parents who never quite managed to fit in, for the ongoing effects of colonisation and globalisation.
