Historic Randell Cottage in Wellington, New Zealand, has been a writers’ residency for New Zealand and French writers since 2001. The Randell Cottage Writers Trust works in partnership with Creative New Zealand, the Embassy of France, the New Zealand-France Friendship Fund and Wellington City Council.
The cottage has two bedrooms and a writing studio. It is located in inner-city Thorndon close to the Lilburn Residence, Rita Angus Cottage, Wellington Asia Residency, and the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace, and within walking distance of the National and Turnbull Libraries.
On 27 June I took part in a presentation at the Friends of Randall Cottage AGM with Randall Cottage French Writer in residence Nicolas Fargues. This got me interested in Randell Cottage as a place and an idea.
Thanks to everyone who spoke to me during this podcast, especially Sian Robyns and Nicolas.
