This past year, we have been lucky to have Susan Viets as our writer-in-residence. With the success of this past year’s residency, we are looking for another writer to join us over the next club year!
The Literature Section seeks to appoint a writer-in-residence for a one year period from September 2013 until August 2014. Desirable applicants are women at the beginning or mid-point of a career in writing (fiction, non-fiction, poetry), editing or journalism.
A woman interested in applying for the post of writer-in-residence should submit a resume of her work experience with a complete list of published works (where and when) as well as some examples of her writing. Short excerpts of longer works, not to exceed 2000 words, will do. As well, applicants should explain why they are interested in the position, of what benefit the post would be to them and how they, in turn, can benefit the Toronto Heliconian Club and its members. Deadline for applications is May 1, 2013.
