Berton House Writers-in-Residence application deadline
October 3, 2016, 12:00 AM EDT
Four writers will be selected to live and work for three months in Dawson City, Yukon, in the childhood home of noted Canadian author Pierre Berton. Writers will receive a $2,000 per month honorarium.
Residents are required to perform a public reading at the Whitehorse Public Library and the Dawson City Community Library. As well, they are encouraged to engage further with the local community by holding writing workshops in the community, interacting with the public and local literary communities, participating in local events and festivals, and availing themselves and their work to local and national media.
Applicants will have published at least one book with a professional publishing house and established themselves in any literary creative discipline (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, young readers, playwriting).
