Pacific Poetry - Dr Karlo Mila

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 29 June 2015

Karlo MilaAn award-winning poet is celebrating something rather special today. She's loved to write for years, and she now can do it while being paid. She's Dr Karlo Mila, who has been named the recipient of the 2015 Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific Writer's Residency. Dr Mila has worked in the mental health area for well over a decade, and has also maintained her passion for poetry. She's had a couple of books published, and her work is taught in schools here and across the Pacific. The writing residency means she will spend three months in Hawai'i, where she'll work on two writing projects.
