Haig-Brown Heritage House Writer in Residence application deadline
April 10, 2019
Published authors are being invited to apply for the 2019-2020 Haig-Brown House Writer in Residence position. The residency entails spending the winter months (or a portion thereof) living in the Haig-Brown Heritage House.
The modest four bedroom house reflects the character of writer Roderick Haig-Brown and his wife Ann. Located in a peaceful setting on the banks of the Campbell River on Vancouver Island, it contains a Heritage library and is surrounded by two acres of garden and 17 acres of public parkland.
The Writer’s time will be divided between pursuing personal writing projects and providing literary advice and support to the local community, with writing time favoured on a 60/40 basis (as per Canada Council’s Author Residencies Program guidelines). The writer would also participate in Museum at Campbell River winter programming.
