Writer in Residence
Vancouver Public Library's Writer in Residence program promotes Canadian writing and literature to Vancouver citizens.
During a four-month residency, the Writer spends 75% of his or her time working on their own project and 25% of his or her time mentoring emerging writers, conducting workshops and participating in other activities to share their experience with the community.
The 2012 Writer in Residence program has now concluded and VPL is evaluating applications for the 2013 residency. The Library's ninth Writer in Residence will be announced later this year.
For more more information about our previous Writers in Residence, see our Past Writers in Residents page.
The VPL Writer in Residence Program is made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Friends of the Vancouver Public Library.
