Deadline for Applications: WritersNL’s Year Of The Arts Programming 

July 1, 2024

As part of its contribution to the Year of the Arts 2024 initiative and its commitment to fostering a vibrant writing community, WritersNL will be delivering two province-wide programs this fall: Writers-in-Schools and Writers-in-Residence. These programs will provide employment opportunities for established writers, as well as professional development opportunities for emerging writers and youth. Funding is available for a total of six positions overall.

The Writers-in-Schools program will connect writers with school classrooms of all grade levels across the province with the aim of enhancing student enrichment through in-person presentations that foster appreciation of the literary arts, development of writing skills, and encouragement of creativity. Applicants will be responsible for contacting schools and arranging visits prior to applying.  

The Writers-in-Residence program will be delivered in partnership with NL Public Libraries, which will provide programming space for approved applicants. By offering library programs such as readings, group workshops, and regular drop-in hours for one-on-one meetings, organized in consultation with library staff, guest writers will provide encouragement and advice to local writers and serve as literary ambassadors to the wider local communities. Additional work space may be available at some locations.

Submission Deadline: July 1, 2024, 5 p.m. NST.
