Tupuranga's second issue Lua: A Whole New World is the result of our first mentorship programme. Ten kaituhi were each paired with a mentor for three months. Over this time, the mentors gave guidance and support as the writers explored ideas and dove deep into their creativity as they responded to the idea 'A Whole New World'.
Fa'afetai tele lava to all our kaituhi for the alofa they put into this project.
Thank you to Creative New Zealand for their generous funding of this project.
