Haywood wins UQ library’s Creative Writing Fellowship

Poet and academic Ashley Haywood is the recipient of the University of Queensland library’s Creative Writing Fellowship.

Haywood will draw on the Fryer Library’s Dorothy Hill collection for a book of poems called Portraits, which will explore the geography, geology, and ecology of Australian landscapes.

Poet Bronwyn Lea will be Haywood’s mentor. She hopes to complete the researching and writing of the poems by the end of 2018.

The fellowship is supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund and library donors.
