The World of Candling and Reindeer Moss: Bernadette Hince, Hot Desk Fellowship Extracts 2014
The Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowships, supported by the Readings Foundation, help writers to find time and space to work on their writing, by providing a desk for two months and a $1000 stipend. This week, we’ll be publishing a series of extracts from the work created by our last intake of Hot Desk Fellows during their time here.
During her Fellowship, Bernadette Hince worked on The Grand Polar Dictionary. Her project is an attempt to document the culture and practices of Arctic life, past and present, through its language –some of which is now fading or extinct. Today, we take a glimpse at her work in progress.
