Title: Centering Ourselves – Writing in a Racialized Canada application deadline
Date: July 12, 2017
Location: Banff, Alberta, Canada
Description: This two-week literary residency nurtures a new frame of contemporary Canadian writing. Increasingly, today’s writer is participating in acts of acknowledgement, reclamation, restoration, and resurgence regarding minority, diasporic, and Indigenous histories. This year, 2017, provides an opportunity to take pause, pivot, and create space to think about these histories, and to write those necessary stories, poems, essays, and novels that speak from an interracial, interethnic, and inter-sectional point of view.
Emerging writers in all creative genres are invited to apply. This program is designed for emerging writers and/or graduate students in creative writing or another humanities program who have a minimum of 20 pages published in trade journals.
