Abstract

Robert Burns Fellow 2008: Sue Wootton (b. 1961)

Sue Wootton is a physiotherapist and acupuncturist ‘by trade’, and ‘has a particular interest in the intersection of medicine and the humanities.’ She writes fiction and poetry for children and adults, and is currently a PhD candidate at Otago. Wootton recalls her Burns tenure:
All of my publications after 2008 have their roots in my year as Burns Fellow. I used the year to read widely, to work on short fiction (which has been published variously since - in “Landfall”, as the short film “Bleat”, and in my short story collection “The Happiest Music on Earth”), and to write the poetry that was collected and published in “By Birdlight”.’ Wootton also co-edits an online magazine called ‘Corpus: Conversations about Medicine and Life’.
