Does Writer -in - Residence mean you have to physically be somewhere?

Susan Moody is the WiR for a Writing Circle/Competition based in Tasmania: http://www.penfactor.com/SusanMoody

The organizer is from England and has the same last name Horwood (Susan's real last name). Maybe a relation?

Could she be in Tasmania?

Typically, yes the writer in residence means that they are in residence. 

But in this day and age, doesn't WiR mean anywhere in the world residence, but just be accessible to us all via electronic medium?  Confused

That's what I would think; but the fact that she's not been seen. And the whole family gathered in Australia for Jane's 50th over Christmas...I am wondering if Susan stayed behind. And then she was in that train accident in UK...it seems she and Papa John are spending a great deal of time apart.

Temi, Susan has done her usefullness. She wrote the love letters to 'woe'  Smiley Floppy Frodo and then espoused all that fertiliser about MEDiana being the Queen of the Whole World.

There is no reason for her to be around anymore. She's been sidelined. First by MEdiana, then by Papa Slurpy.

which makes me think Papa Slurpy is also sidelined by his illustrious only daughter MEDiana.

Wonder if MEdiana has paid him off or or is paying him off or is he living off the Alecra (sp?) Investment Funds a la Danes' tax money? Thinking Thinking

Hello everybody! This morning I was taking my little boy to the pediatrician and... I literally bumped into Papa Slurupson and Susan, touring the Rialto market (I live in Venice)! They were accompanied by a man who was guiding them and explaining things... and was watching me with a nasty look when he noticed that I was looking at them! About the two: they were wearing casual attires, and looked very homely (Susan more than him). She is quite small while Papa Slurpy is taller than I expected, seeing him in photos, and I have to say than Xian really takes after him. That's all my fellow dishers, the account of my first "royal-related"  sighting!  Beer

I love first-hand accounts!  Star

I wonder who the man was who was guiding them.  It sounds like he knew of their "royal" connection since he was so angry that you were looking at them.   Roll Eyes  It makes me think that they found a local tour guide and mentioned who they were before they went on the outing.

Yes you are right Pixie, I got the feeling that he knew who they were... and was upset by the fact that I kept watching them. But at the same time the guy didn't look like a local, I got the impression that he wasn't even italian (altough I couldn't hear him speaking)  Thinking

Wasn't sure where to place this but the article does refer to Mary's father, this thread is my best guess.


http://www.dailymail.co.u...-used-stay-auctioned.html


The strangest part of all is that none of the comments have been about Mary, no fashion icon, mother icon, lovely princess etc. Shocked

Have D M readers forgotten Mary and family's history at last. Shocked


WTH I thought the press were over the top when they saturated their publications with the Donaldson's history, how did they miss this little gem, J D's Navy Career  Banana Banana

I could find no evidence he's ever served in the Australian Defence Force. You'd think it would be mentioned somewhere on the internet if he had?  Thinking

It's also a bit unclear from the article just how were they staying at the house. Did they own it? Did they rent it? Were they staying with a friend? Their friend must've been rich then because Rose Bay is not a cheap area (and the area where the current owners are moving, Vaucluse is even more affluent area).

And more importantly, did this Navy career happen before the university career or what? I'm surprised it hasn't come up if it indeed did happen. I think they're mixing up some other John Donaldson with a daughter named Mary with the ones we're talking about.

Rose Bay has never been a wealthy area - it just seems wealthy relative to further west! Rose Bay has always had much cheaper houses than Vaucluse or Woollahra ...
