From Sprint to Marathon: Craig Cliff and Tina Makereti

In 2010, Writers on Mondays showcased the debut short-story collections of two dynamic new writers: Craig Cliff and Tina Makereti. We pair these two writers again to discuss their second books—Cliff’s The Mannequin Makers, and Makereti’s Where the Rēkohu Bone Sings. Makereti’s novel has been described as ‘generous’ and ‘unshrinking’ and Cliff’s as ‘engaging and deadly smart’. Chair Kate Duignan asks how these two writers made the switch from short story to novel, what were the different challenges presented by both genres, and what are they working on now?

Writers on Mondays is presented with Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, the New Zealand Centre for Literary Translation, and National Poetry Day.
