The Robert Burns Fellowship, New Zealand's premier literary residency, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008. The annual fellowship, available to writers in all literary forms, provides the winner with an office in Otago University's English department and a salary not less than that of a full-time lecturer. This 2008 photo shows more than 30 Burns fellows, including 1964 fellow Maurice Gee (front row, second from right) and 1970 fellow O. E. Middleton (front row, right), beneath the statue of Robert Burns in Dunedin's Octagon.
