Current student Tim Loveday has been accepted into The Wheeler Centre's The Next Chapter.
Each year, The Wheeler Centres picks ten outstanding writers and give them $15,000 each to develop their work. They are matched with a mentor and work closely with them to bring their writing to life.
Tim is a poet, a writer, an editor and a clown-lark. As the recipient of a 2020 Next Chapter Wheeler Centre Fellowship and a 2021 Varuna Residential Fellowship, his creative work aims to challenge toxic masculinity in Australia. His poetry/prose have appeared in Cordite, The Big Issue, Meniscus, Text Journal, Quadrant, The Big Smoke and Brain drip, among others. A Neurodivergent dog parent, he is the content editor at Hyperviolet Designs and the verse editor for The Creative Hub of Extinction Rebellion.
Originally from rural NSW, Tim currently resides in North Melbourne, traditional land of the Wurundjeri people. As an avid fan of the full stop, he’s afraid of sentences longer than six words; this bio is trying.
