Publication of Ian Wilson Memorial Fellowship project

Amelia Mellor

We have received very exciting news from Amelia Mellor, our second Ian Wilson Memorial Fellow, that her project, 'The Grandest Bookshop in the World' has been contracted for publication and will be on the shelves in 2021.

Amelia Mellor had her residency in Adelaide in 2018 to work on this middle-grade historical fantasy novel. She undertook a range of professional development experiences, immersed herself in practical research for the novel - and of course did a whole lot of writing.

The Ian Wilson Memorial Fellowship was established in 2017 to support writers and illustrators on their journey from 'emerging' to 'published', a journey that Amelia is now travelling so successfully.
