Receiving the good news?
I happen to know that a biography of Kapiti poet and major New Zealand literary figure Alistair Te Ariki Campbell has been brewing for a long time now -- and it seems that at last this labor of love has a good chance of being completed.

Author, translator (to and from German), and opera singer Nelson Wattie has been awarded an 8-week stint at the Michael King Writers' Centre in Devonport, Auckland, next southern autumn, along with an $8,000 stipend.

Congratulations are also due to Aucklander Arthur Meek, who has a summer residency to work on a play called The Good Times.
