Welcome to the 2019 Writers in Residence

The Writer in Residence (WIR) program is a joint project, shared by four libraries in the Metro Edmonton area:

  • Edmonton Public Library
  • Strathcona County Library
  • St. Albert Public Library
  • Fort Saskatchewan Public Library

The Writer in Residence program provides an opportunity to connect with a published author. The Writer in Residence:

  • Provides support to aspiring and established writers through one-on-one consultations, workshops, and mentorship,
  • Connects with community groups and organizations to do outreach,
  • Connects with and encourages the imagination of readers through public programming, and
  • Acts as a living link between the Library and the community.

The Library provides time, space, and resources for the Writer in Residence to grow their body of work.

Writer in Residence Programs are held at the following libraries:
