Writing Fellowships 2016

In 2016, JIAS hosted its first intake of Writing Fellows for a Writing Term running from mid-February to mid-May. They were based at the JIAS complex in Westdene for the duration of the semester, which offered them a quiet space for work and reflection, and an opportunity for academic community-building. Short biographical notes of the 2016 Writing Fellows follow.
