Welcome Barbara and Chris Else

Barbara and Chris Else have recently moved into the cottage to take up a three-month residency. Barbara is the 2016 University of Otago College of Education/Creative New Zealand Children's Writer in Residence, and Chris will also be writing at the cottage.

Jan Bolwell has just left the cottage. Jan has been working on two plays and using the Hocken resources. Her partner Sunny Amey visited while she was there. Sunny was a close friend of Robert Lord's and directed his first play when she was director of Downstage.
