The May Gibbs Children's Literature Trust promotes the creation of contemporary Australian children’s literature in the belief that children’s books, written and illustrated by Australians, are vital to the well-being, creativity and literacy of our children.
"The benefits of the May Gibbs Creative Time Residential Fellowship have been immeasurable! I was able to bring several projects to a stage they would not have reached for years, had I not been given the uninterrupted time to write.During my stay in Adelaide, I am very grateful to have spent time with so many generous, inspiring and invigorating people….. and with no one at all. I loved every second of my time spent in the Burrow.
The gorgeous illustrations above we supplied by Emma during her Fellowship.
This month ... full ideas have formed, connections made, Norwood footpaths walked. I’m not the same writer who would have come here in 2019.'
"The Creative Time Residential Fellowship was a wonderful gift. I found myself reflecting deeply about my writing process, my work and my future creative projects".
