DENMARK ARTS VARUNA WRITERS FELLOWSHIP : SHORTLIST AND WINNER ANNOUNCED! 

Congratulations to Renee Pettit-Schipp, the winner of our Inaugural Fellowship! Also to Linda Bradbury and Patricia Gill – shortlisted.

Renee’s work describes the journey of a former resident returning to Christmas Island and the Cocos Islands, trying to come to terms with her experiences  (including her work with asylum seekers) to make sense of the way her life has changed.

In 2019, Renee’s debut poetry collection won the WA Premier’s Literary Award and the Curtin Postgraduate Work of the Year. The collection was also shortlisted for the Dorothy Hewett manuscript prize and the 2019 CHASS Australia Prize for Postgraduates.
