Abstract

Robert Burns Fellow 1992: Owen Marshall (b. 1941)

Owen Marshall describes his Burns year: ‘Holding the Burns Fellowship in 1992 was a privilege and a pleasure. The assured income, amenities and support gave me the opportunity to complete my first published novel, “A Many Coated Man”, which was subsequently short listed for the Montana Book Awards.
Important as the financial assistance is, the validation of one’s craft is more significant and lasting. As well as assisting my writing, my tenure brought with it the benefit of being within the fraternity of Otago writers and artists, many of whom are friends. Whenever I now visit Dunedin and the university, I recall my good fortune to have been a Burns Fellow.’
