Pip and Pat
Pip was writer in residence at Massey University Palmerston North from April-June 2019. During the residency, she worked on a new book about a family faced with the suicide of their 21-year-old son while in the care of an acute mental health unit. She also gave workshops and talks in the community on writing creative non-fiction.
Pip’s memoir, Song for Rosaleen, was longlisted in the general non-fiction section of the 2019 Ockham NZ Book Awards. Published by Massey University Press, the book is both a celebration of Pip’s mother Rosaleen’s life and the intimate portrait of a family coping with dementia. It is available from good bookstores, online or by emailing Pip. See our books page for more details.
‘Love song, lament, protest song: Song For Rosaleen is all these and more. Highly recommended reading.’ – Sue Wootton, co-editor, Corpus
