One term ends, another begins…

Spring is here! As the temperature reaches double digits, it’s time for Winnipeggers to don cut-offs and flip-flops at the first opportunity, and also time to bid farewell to one Writer-in-Residence and begin searching for the next.

This Thursday, April 26, come say goodbye to Terry Jordan and hear him read from his work, together with some of the authors he’s mentored during his term. Join us in the Reader Services area on the main floor of the Millennium Library at 7 pm.

The Library is also inviting applications for the Writer-in-Residence 2012 – 2013. From an office at Millennium Library, the Writer-in-Residence works with emerging Manitoba writers by email and phone as well as through individual consultations, group workshops, and other programs .

The residency will begin October 1, 2012 and run for seven months, subject to funding. For more information on criteria, compensation, and how to apply, see the Library’s May-June newsletter or call me at 986-2802.

The deadline to apply is Monday, June 4.

The Writer-in-Residence program is co-sponsored by the Winnipeg Public Library Board, the Friends of the Winnipeg Public Library, the Manitoba Writers’ Guild, and the Manitoba government.
