I’m excited to be headed to Japan next month for a twelve-week writers’ residency with thanks to Asialink, the Malcolm Robertson Foundation and Tenjin-yama Art Studio. I’ll be in Sapporo to start work on a new writing project and, though this feels very nebulous at the moment, I am very much looking forward to meeting the other artists and the team at Tenjin-yama and to starting something brand new.

Congratulations and good luck to all the other 2017 Asialink residents. I had the chance to meet a number of them at the orientation day at Melbourne Uni last week and they are an incredibly diverse group with so many interesting projects. You can see the full list here.
