Hazel Rowley Fellowship shortlist for 2015

Naomi Parry has been shortlisted for the Hazel Rowley Fellowship for 2015. The Fellowship commemorates the life, ideas and writing of Hazel Rowley (1951–2011) and awards $10,000 to an Australian writer to support the writing and research of a new biographical work. The intention is to encourage risk taking and travel to immerse writers in their subject’s lives and culture. Naomi’s proposal is a biography of Musquito that examines colonial and post-colonial approaches to Aboriginal history.
