Happy New Year!!! I reckon 2018 is going to be a good one. I recently heard that I’ve been awarded a 2018 KSP Fellowship — which means I get to spend two weeks in a wooden cabin set in the garden of Katharine Susannah Prichard’s former home at Greenmount in Western Australia. At ‘Katharine’s Place’, I’ll be able to immerse myself in a new writing project about my family history and Amsterdam in World War Two, meet other Fellows and Writers-in-Residence, and be involved with the local community who come along to a range of writing groups at the centre. A huge THANK YOU to the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre for offering me this wonderful opportunity!
Congratulations to all 2018 Fellows and Writers-in-Residence — and special congratulations go to my friend Edwina Shaw who was awarded one of the Emerging Writers-in-Residence positions!
