Marian Evans

My Development Project is For Women Who Make Movies; & For The People Who Love Them. Globally. The most useful interview about my work is here, on Indiewire. I'm very happy to support New Zealand-made films by and about women, on Twitter and Facebook, on Pinterest and in my blog. And here at Boosted, in a very small way, because I like the idea that if lots of people donate small amounts to projects they like we'll get some great new movies (etc!).

Image for Dear Mother Basillise

Hinemoana Baker

Kia ora! I'm a poet and teacher of creative writing in Wellington. The new book I'm writing tells two haunting family stories: my father's time spent as a child in a Catholic orphanage in Nelson, and my own story of trying to become a parent and experiencing infertility. It's about what it means to lose a parent, to be a parent, and to lose the opportunity to have children of your own. On a wider level it's about me connecting with my father through our shared experiences of grief. For the last year I have been Creative New Zealand Victoria University Writer in Residence in Wellington. I've researched and written 40,000 words of a new book, 'Dear Mother Basillise'. I need one more year of writing and researching full time to take my book to the point where I can submit it to my publisher. I'm asking my 'Boosted' supporters to help me with the first six months of that.
