Wairarapa resident Gaye Sutton has been selected as the 2016 Masterton Fellow and will be in residence for three weeks in March, including World Storytelling Day on March 20th, when public activities will be held. Her first novel was released in 2015 and during the Fellowship supported by Masterton District Council, she will work on Change The World One Story At a Time, a book of her stories.
Gaye Sutton tells stories that explore social structures and the way that they affect people’s personal lives. She combines these with universal myths and stories of transformation in her own life and in the lives of others. After all, she says, "stories have changed our lives (as only art does) for many thousands of years."
Gaye Sutton has been invited to Australia, Denmark, Norway, the United States, and all around New Zealand to tell her unforgettable stories, and in May 2016, she will go on to the Michael King Writers' Centre.
NZPS is delighted that she will be with us soon.
