Deadline to Apply for Banff Centre’s Literary Journalism Online Residency
May 26, 2021, 12:00 AM
Literary Journalism Online is a two-week online residency that encourages the exploration of new ideas in journalism and experimentation in writing. Designed to challenge and stimulate, the program aims to inspire creative pieces of non-fiction and to assist the writers in their completion. A preeminent space for long-form journalism, this residency emphasizes the strengths of thorough and articulate reporting, distinctive storytelling, and literary devices.
This residency gives writers time to work on their manuscripts, receive individual consultations with faculty Charlotte Gill, Carol Shaben, and Michael Harris; Q&A sessions; group discussions; and one-on-one workshopping. Instructors will discuss ideas, experiences, and obstacles that participants may be encountering with their literary journalism. Work created in this program has been published in many outlets including The Globe and Mail, The Walrus, and The Atlantic, and pieces have gone on to win National Magazine and National Newspaper Awards.
We welcome writers from all backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions.
*Financial Aid up to 100% is available for this program.
Program Dates: July 3 – 16, 2021
Application Deadline: May 26, 2021
