Families that differ from the traditional model are becoming increasingly more common.
In Aotearoa New Zealand a large percentage of the population belong to single-parented or differently-structured families. Rere Takitahi/ Flying Solo creatively explores the lived experience of these alternative families in a comprehensive anthology that showcases the creative work of 50 new, emerging, established, and veteran writers, across multiple genres.

“Rere Takitahi/Flying Solo is personal and political, accessible and heartfelt. The pieces in this wide-ranging collection provide insight into what it means to be family, to belong. Here in fiction, memoir, essay, poetry, and reportage, diverse writers explore the experiences of those who parent in ways beyond the conventional. Through JCL Purchase and AJ Woolf’s tender editing, a truly beautiful book and indispensable read results.”
Siobhan Harvey – Academic, Author, and Editor

“Rere Takitahi/Flying Solo embodies the diversity of values and practices when it comes to family — and the presence of differently-structured families in Aotearoa New Zealand. I particularly value the insights provided into the parenting journey.”

“This anthology is a valuable contribution to our collective understanding of the current social and cultural environment. It is vitally important that we see and hear ourselves and our communities reflected in the arts.”
