Jeffrey Paparoa Holman gets Waikato residency

Congratulations to Jeffrey for being chosen as the Waikate University Writer in Residence for 2011. Jeffrey has been a valuable member of our team from the outset, mentoring students and supporting our many activities. We will miss his input but know that this will be a wonderful opportunity for him to further his writing.He has several projects in mind to work on while he is there. The first is a collection of poetry he’s called Second Cuts which will centre round New Zealand’s shearing culture; the other is a memoir which stems from a photograph of a Kamikaze pilot striking an aircraft carrier with Holman’s father on board.

Jeffrey will be launching his latest collection of poetry, Fly Boy, on Sunday 14 November at 5.30pm at the Air Force Museum of NZ.
