Congratulations to Jim McIntyre


Congratulations to alumnus Jim McIntyre on being awarded runner-up in the Victorian Premier's Unpublished Manuscript Award.


“Back in 2008-09 I was fortunate enough to be offered a 3-week Residential Fellowship at Varuna to work on my novel Connections (subsequently retitled Nikolai The Perfect).

I thought I would let you know that yesterday Nikolai The Perfect was awarded runner-up in the Victorian Premier's Unpublished Manuscript Award - see Wheeler Centre announcement. I will always be grateful to Varuna for the opportunity to develop my art, and at long last reap some rewards.
With immense gratitude,
Jim McIntyre.”
