Jude Aquilina the Milang poet and author and member of Sand Writers was awarded the 2018 Barbara Hanrahan Fellowship at Adelaide Writers’ Week. Established in 1993 and awarded biennially, the Fellowship is named in honour of one of the most distinguished South Australian Writers. Sand Writers congratulates Jude whose award winning poetry and stories always have an extraordinary freshness and include the sense of Jude being so aware and sympathetic to human desires, experiences and follies.
Well done Jude. Long may you continue to inspire with your extraordinary capacity to observe and take in all that comes to you as you present poetry and stories which are full of insightful writing about your world; so all we have to do is tune ourselves in to the warmth and optimism of your language.
