Announcement from the Dan Davin Literary Foundation
The Dan Davin Literary Foundation is very pleased to announce that we will be hosting the inaugural Dan Davin Literary Foundation Writer in Residence this year.
The Foundation is pleased with the calibre of applications we received for the residency and we are very pleased to announce that for this residency we have offered a joint opportunity to Dunedin based writers Majella Cullinane and Maxine Alterio.
They will be staying in Invercargill for 6 weeks from 29 August and during that time will not only attend to their own work but will host a variety of writing workshops throughout the region.
We have also ensured that they have some Southland experiences while here and the residency includes a trip to Stewart Island for Majella and for Maxine a trip to Milford Sound.
Congratulations to Maxine and to Majella, who is a creative writing PhD student in the Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies.
