During his residency at Frontyard, Belgian author Gert Boel will be working on his novel 'The Black Flamingo' (working title), which describes the experiences of Isaak Lemonnier, an unsuccessful artist. Boel (°1984), a Belgian author, has written and published short stories for several Flemish and Dutch outlets, including the short story collection Aangeboord Talent (Talent Tapped) and Dutch short story magazine Das Magazin. In November, Boel will be publishing his first English short story 'The Migrants' in Shorts, an Australian on line literary magazine. 'The Black Flamingo' is his first bilingual (Dutch-English) effort at a novel which will appear in both a Dutch and an English version, using Brussels and Sydney as backdrops, respectively.
