THE BARBARA HANRAHAN FELLOWSHIP

Barbara Hanrahan (19391991)

21th March 2016

Barbara Hanrahan was a leading printmaker and a writer whose career began in 1973 with The Scent of Eucalyptus. She went on to publish thirteen novels and two collections of stories, and at her untimely death in 1991 South Australia lost one of its greatest creative talents.

The fellowship established in her name is awarded every two years during the Festival Awards for Literature at Adelaide Writers' Week. It is a prize that every South Australian writer dreams of winning, and I am thrilled to say that I am the recipient of the 2016 Barbara Hanrahan Fellowship.

What with the release of a new book, Quiet City: Walking in West Terrace Cemetery, and the fellowship, 2016 has got off to a great start. I am looking forward to settling into the writing of the new novel this fellowship supports.
