Anna Taylor

Tutor - short fiction I & short fiction II (online) and combined genres

Anna’s first book - Relief, a collection of short stories – won Best First Book of Fiction at the 2010 NZ Post Book Awards. The first draft of Relief, which was awarded the Adam Prize in Creative Writing in 2006, was written during her MA in Creative Writing at Victoria University's IIML. Anna was the recipient of the 2009 Todd Writer’s Bursary, and in 2012 she took up residence as one of two Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellows to work on her second book. Her work has been published in Hue and Cry, Sport, Turbine, The Penguin Book of Contemporary New Zealand Short Stories,  and the German language edition of Some Other Country .

'I love the process of working with students to refine their writing. The experience of watching work develop and grow feels incredibly rich. I like the feeling of everyone being in it together - fellow students and tutors - supporting and encouraging each other to make writing the best it can be.'
