Abstract

Robert Burns Fellow 2004: Kate Duignan (b. 1974)

Kate Duignan remembers her Robert Burns Fellowship:
In Dunedin, in 2004, I was writing about Amsterdam, about two New Zealand boys camping in the Vondelpark in the 1970s, about a golden book with Marc Chagall’s paintings of “Daphnis and Chloe”. Those scenes were cut, and edited, and rearranged, but all the elements remain in the published version of “The New Ships”, which came out earlier this year.

The year I had the Fellowship, I also bought a mountain bike; I learned, from my flatmate, Simone Drichel, how to make my own muesli; and I got a large amount of dental work seen to. All of this, I’m grateful for, fourteen years on. I still ride the bike, the fillings are sound, and my kids are growing up on Simone’s muesli.’
