Adelle has been announced as one of 2023's Burgess Fellows. Alongside Joe Carrick-Varty, she will be writer-in-residence at the University of Manchester during spring term.
Based at the Centre for New Writing, the Fellowships introduce two new, published writers to each year’s new Creative Writing MA cohort at the Centre, and are given special access to the archive of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester.
As well as working with the MA Creative Writing cohort, the Fellows also work with undergraduate students, bridging the BA to MA gap. They are integral to the Centre’s commitment to introducing a broad range of mentors for its students, and for increasing student contact with the practical contexts of the publishing industry by working with writers who are publishing new work during the course of their appointment.
