November 14th 2007
This month I talk to local writer Philippa Jamieson about her recently released book The Wild Green Yonder. Philippa tore herself away from the joys of Dunedin to experience New Zealand travelling on the WWOOF scheme (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms.) Over two and a half years she volunteered at 40 locations. We talk about her exploits and the wonderful people she met along the way.
Carl Nixon hails from Christchurch and is an award winning writer of plays, short fiction and novels. His novel Rocking Horse Road was released this year. He most recently won the BNZ Katherine Mansfield Short Story Competition with his story My Beautiful Balloon. I caught up with Carl when he was in Dunedin recently as part of the writers in schools programme.
