Orr, Bradley among recipients of Copyright Agency fellowships worth $240k

The Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund has awarded a total of $240,000 for three fellowships.

Adelaide writer Stephen Orr was awarded the $80,000 author fellowship for his project ‘The Journey’, a reimagining of pastor Carl Strehlow and his 14-year-old son, Theodor, as they travel through the South Australian desert.

The $80,000 fellowship for nonfiction writing was awarded to author and critic James Bradley for his project ‘Deep Water’, a series of interconnected essays on the catastrophe taking place in the oceans, from plastic pollution to warming waters.

Danielle Freakley was awarded the $80,000 fellowship for a visual artist.

As previously reported by Books+Publishing, last year Jeff Sparrow and Bernadette Brennan were awarded the author and nonfiction fellowships respectively, joining Kathryn Heyman, Melissa Lucashenko and Mark Henshaw as previous winners.
