Pearson biography funded

Paul Millar of Wellington has won the 2003 Copyright Licensing Limited (CLL) Writer’s Award to work on a biography of writer Bill Pearson.

The $35,000 non-fiction award will allow Dr Millar to scale down his work as senior lecturer in the School of English, Film and Theatre at Victoria University, and complete his work by the end of 2004.

“We particularly liked the fact that Bill Pearson’s story embodied some key movements in New Zealand 20th century life – especially relating to intellectual culture, left-wing politics, homosexuality and the development of Maori academia,” said CLL selection panel chair Jenny Jones.
