Awards

2019 Winner of the NZSA Heritage Short Prose Award for my essay ‘The Missing’, described by the judge, Paul Maunder, as ‘a perfect piece of heritage writing…. There is genealogy, there is research from the time and use of newspaper articles, there is sociological information, family letters, a present-day visit to the Somme, and some elements of fictional imagining.’

2017 Winner Heritage Writing Competition, Poetry section
My poem was Reading the Sky, which, according to judge Gail Ingram “is a poem filled with beautiful images,” and it “points to the importance and power of personal transformation as we keep searching to find our way.”
