Call for Applications: Online Writers' Residency

Hosted by Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity's Late Winter Writers Residency Online is a small cohort program that gives you a chance to learn from each other and faculty, attend exclusive talks, ask questions, and develop your practice.

What does the program offer? This two week online residency running February 6 to 17, 2023, provides broad thematic teaching from faculty members, Dani Spinosa and Kate Siklosi, Q&A sessions and workshopping. Instructors will discuss ideas, experiences, and obstacles that you may be encountering with your writing of both poetry and fiction. One-on-one mentorship will allow you to receive direct mentorship on craft and professional development.

Who should apply? Writers in Fiction and Poetry are invited to apply. The online program is designed for emerging and established writers with a proven publication record. We welcome writers from all ages, backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions.

This Residency only accepts projects that are being written in English.

This program is not open to applicants who have taken part in a Banff Centre residency in the last year, nor to current faculty members of any other Banff Centre programming.

Additional Details Writers will need access to a computer, consistent internet access, Discord and Zoom. Banff Centre will provide remote technical support for all Zoom sessions.

Financial assistance covering 100% of the program fee is available.

Application deadline November 23.
