NSW Writers’ Fellow for 2018/2019 – Create NSW

I am thrilled and deeply grateful – the NSW Government has awarded me a Create NSW Artform Fellowship for 2018/19. This grant will make a huge difference to my career. It will enable me to travel to Sri Lanka to research my new work, Chai Time at Cinnamon Gardens. I also hope to develop The Phantom Heart (for the proposed Ellie Ryder series) and undertake training and residencies. Being the NSW Writers’ Fellow for 2018/2019 is such an honour. Thank you Create NSW for your support, encouragement and faith.

Jonathan O’Dea, Member for Davidson commented too. He said: “This is incredibly exciting news for Shankari. I am delighted that she has received this prestigious Create NSW Fellowship and look forward to the positive impact on her literary career.”

He’s right. My children said, “Good job, Mummy. Can we have extra screen time to celebrate?”
