The 2014 programme of Writers Read on Massey’s Wellington campus continues. Following on from a collaboration with the NZ International Festival of the Arts in March, we now invite you to an on-site lunchtime event as part of our popular Arts on Wednesdays programme.

Alice Miller is the author of a poetry collection, The Limits (2014), published simultaneously by Shearsman and Auckland University Press. She writes in a variety of forms, including short fiction, essays and works for theatre. She has received the BNZ Katherine Mansfield Premier Award, the Royal Society of New Zealand Manhire Prize, a Glenn Schaeffer Fellowship at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and a trip to Antarctica courtesy of Antarctica New Zealand. She has an MA from the International Institute of Modern Letters and an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

Tim Corballis is the author of the novels Below (2001), Measurement (2002), and The Fossil Pits (2005—all Victoria University Press), as well as a large number of shorter works including short fiction, essays and art writing. A pair of novellas, R.H.I, will be forthcoming in early 2015. His essay Winter won the 2013 Landfall Essay Competition. He has been collaborating with photographer Fiona Amundsen since 2004, on works such as Si C’est (If It Is) (2007, shown at The Physics Room, Christchurch Te Tuhi, Auckland) and the ongoing project The Long Fall. Recently he completed a doctorate through The University of Auckland, focusing on the possibilities of aesthetic theory in antipodean contexts.

The event will be chaired by Ingrid Horrocks.
