What is a Writer in Residence?
A Writer in Residence is an invited artist who spends 60% of the one-year residency working on his or her own writing projects and 40% of the residency as a resource for students, faculty, and the university community. The Writer in Residence advises these groups on all aspects of the writing process: from taking a manuscript from creation to publication. The Writer in Residence often participates in public readings and other literary events and can also serve faculty as a research and teaching resource.
Athabasca University's 2020-2021 Writer in Residence/Writer is to be announced in August 2020.
