I was recently awarded a NEILMA SIDNEY LITERARY TRAVEL FUND 2018 grant for a research trip and a BUNDANON TRUST writing residency in New South Wales. During my time at Bundanon I will work on the final chapter of my non-fiction manuscript, Homesickness. Combining old photographs, memory drawings, memoir, literary criticism and original research, the manuscript explores the psychological space of childhood homes.
THE SHARE HOUSE PROJECT is my collaborative project with visual artist Stephanie Jones. We are exploring speculative architecture built on the foundations of memory, asking members of the public to contribute by drawing the floor plans of their childhood homes from memory. A short interview with us and what we're up to is here.
