Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity: Emerging Writers Residency Program, Application Deadline July 6

Emerging Writers Residency | In Person

This workshop-based program focuses on providing structured support for new Young Adult (YA) & Children's Literature writers wanting to improve their writing skills. Two faculty work closely with 7 participants each, offering new writers the opportunity to work on a portion of a manuscript in a workshop setting with editorial faculty.

The program will help writers build their critical vocabulary, making them better critics of their own and others' work. Participants will also learn more about the craft of writing, and about the conventions and possibilities for innovation in YA and Children's Literature.

Writers from all backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions are encouraged to apply.

*Financial Aid of 100% of tuition and 50% of meal and accommodation is available for this program.

Program Dates: October 2 - 16, 2022
