ANZL member David Howard has been chosen by the Ulyanovsk UNESCO board to be one of the first two participants of the Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature Residency Programme. He will visit in September 2019, using this time to develop a poetic sequence set in Ulyanovsk, as well as to collaborate with a local composer on a musical setting for his texts. David will work in an apartment in the city centre in a quiet courtyard with a garden, located on the territory of the hotel complex “Old Simbirsk”. He will perform the results of his work at a presentation at the end of the stay in Ulyanovsk. Congratulations David! For more information on the residency and participants see here.
