We’re thrilled to announce that our July/August poetry micro-resident for 2021 is Tais Rose Wae!
Tais Rose Wae is a writer and weaver living on sovereign Bundjalung country. With a complex displaced cultural identification developed through the ongoing process of colonisation, her poetry and weaving alike seek to highlight the significance of decolonisation work while celebrating a resilient connection to her Aboriginal ancestry as it is inevitably passed on through blood. Her work has been published in The Australian Poetry Anthology, Overland, Westerly, Knus Magazine and Paradiso and she was runner-up for the 2020 Nakata Brophy Prize for Young Indigenous Writers and highly commended for The Wheeler Centre’s The Next Chapter.
Tais will produce new work over a two-month period (July/August), which will be distributed via Running Dog’s monthly newsletter.
Running Dog is offering five micro-residencies in 2021: March/April, May,/June, July/August, September/October, and November/December. Call outs for each residency will take place in the month before they begin.
