Library calls for writer-in-residence applications

The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library is on the hunt for its first-ever writer-in-residence, a job the library hopes will promote the written arts in the region.

The writer-in-residence’s responsibilities will include assisting other writers by email and phone, providing writing workshops and doing in-person consultations, as well as delivering reading programs in the library and surrounding communities — and, of course, work on their own writing.

The residency will pay $4,000 per month and will run from September to November this year.

In September, the writer will serve as a featured author at Words Alive Kamloops, the annual writers’ festival.

To apply, writers must have at least one major professionally published work and be working on a writing project intended for publication, among other eligibility criteria.

The deadline for applications is July 5 at 4 p.m.
