Katherine Mansfield Menton literary fellowship almost safe

From Standing Room Only, 12:40 pm on 4 October 2015

The Katherine Mansfield Menton Fellowship for New Zealand writers which was at risk of ending after 45 years is tantalisingly close to being saved. Since sponsorship dried up,18 months of fundraising has collected most of the $700,000 needed to keep the fellowship going in the Southern French town where Mansfield once lived and wrote. Richard Cathie is the chair of the Winn-Manson Menton Trust (http://mansfieldfellowship.org/the-trust.html) which is holding a fundraiser in Wellington to raise a chunk of the $100,000 dollar shortfall.
