Plunkett receives ABR Patrons’ Fellowship

The Australian Book Review (ABR) has announced poet and critic Felicity Plunkett as the recipient of its $10,000 ABR Patrons’ Fellowship.

Plunkett will contribute several articles to ABR over the year as part of the fellowship, which was established last year to mark ABR’s 40th anniversary.

On accepting the fellowship, Plunkett said: ‘I’m very grateful for the imaginative spaciousness the Fellowship enables. This allows me the precious gift of writing time, sometimes elusive in a freelance writer’s life. I admire the width of ABR’s range—the diversity of forms, ideas and texts it explores—and this Fellowship enables me to extend my writing in new directions.’
