Writer-in-Residence Program

The English and Film Studies Writer-in-Residence Program

The Writer-in-Residence Program is a residency from September 1st to May 31st, which for the last forty years has brought acclaimed writers from across Canada to Edmonton. While here, the Writer-in-Residence has time to pursue the WiR's own writing projects, while keeping office hours two half-days a week for writing consultation with university staff and students, as well as the general public in and around Edmonton.
