Meet the recipient of our 2023 Ian Wilson Memorial Fellowship
We take the pleasure in announcing the recipient selected to undertake the May Gibbs Children's Literature Trust Ian Wilson Memorial Fellowship in 2023. This wonderful opportunity not only offers ‘the gift of time’ through being able to take time away from home in accommodation provided by the Trust, but also includes a co-constructed schedule of supported networking opportunities, visits, and professional development.
We extend our warmest congratulations to Brenton Cullen. Brenton is a Queensland-based writer whose passion has always been writing for children, particularly picture book texts, junior fiction and middle grade novels, with fantasy and mystery genres being particular favourites to write. Brenton is looking forward to beginning his Fellowship and looks forward to spending his time in Adelaide, learning and networking in the children's book industry and utilising his allotted creative writing time to work on two specific projects. Brenton is excited to begin his time in Adelaide and is very grateful to have received the Ian Wilson Memorial Fellowship from the May Gibbs Trust.
