Dear Katherine



1 November 2020 | WORD Christchurch Spring Festival
Presented by Milford Asset Management
Supported by the Katherine Mansfield Fellowship administered by the Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi

For fifty years, writers have travelled to Menton in the south of France to take up the Katherine Mansfield Fellowship. While there, they work in a studio attached to the Villa Isola Bella, where Katherine Mansfield, arguably New Zealand’s most famous writer, lived and wrote for a time late in her career. We invite five of those writers to write a letter to Mansfield about their time writing by the Mediterranean, or about anything they think Katherine should know about the world in 2020. Featuring Paula Morris, Vincent O’Sullivan, Bill Manhire, Carl Nixon and Fiona Farrell.
