The Al Purdy A-Frame Residency application deadline
October 18, 2019
The Al Purdy house on Roblin Lake near Ameliasburgh, Ontario is now the site of the A-Frame Residency Program, under which writers are offered a time and place to work in a location that is attractive and of historic significance. Each year between mid-April and mid-November the house will be open for the residency. Writers who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents may apply for a term of two to twelve weeks. The residency will be open to all writers, but preference will be given to poetry and poetry projects. Each year the Selection Committee will also consider proposals for a one to four week project in critical writing about Canadian poetry and will be open to unusual and creative ideas for residencies.
