Mabel Pugh Taylor Writer in Residence position (Hamilton, Ontario) application deadline
October 27, 2019
The Department of English & Cultural Studies at McMaster University, McMaster University Library, and the Hamilton Public Library invite applications from Canadian creative writers for the position of Mabel Pugh Taylor Writer in Residence. At this time, they are calling for applicants for three, non-renewable positions, one in each of the next three years. The Selection Committee will assign successful candidates to one of the three positions.
This residency involves work with the McMaster and Hamilton communities through public readings, individual consultation with creative writers, classroom visits, group workshops, and/or seminars. The Writer in Residence will have an office in both the Department of English & Cultural Studies and the Hamilton Public Library where regular meetings with apprentice writers will take place for the equivalent of two days a week, but the position also reserves considerable time for the candidate’s own writing.
