In 2017, the program was open to First Nations writers at any stage of their writing career. We are very pleased to announce the successful applicant of our next residency: Laniyuk Garcon Born of a French mother and a Larrakia/Kungarrakan/Gurindji father Laniyuk’s writing often reflects the intersectionality of her cross-cultural and queer identity. She was fortunate enough to contribute to the book Colouring the Rainbow: Blak Queer and Trans Perspectives as well as winning the Indigenous residency for Canberra’s Noted Writers Festival 2017. She currently lives in Melbourne but is hoping to one day return to her home town Darwin. During the three-month residency, running late November to late February, Laniyuk will receive a weekly stipend, private workspace at the Overland office and a mentorship with the extraordinary writer, poet and editor Ellen van Neerven.
