About the Program / Eligibility
Congatulations to our 2015 Edna Staebler Writer-in-Residence applicant: Drew Hayden Taylor
The Edna Staebler Laurier Writer-in-Residence will receive $25,000 for a three-month residency – beginning January 18, 2016. The successful applicant will live in Lucinda House, a century home close to Laurier's Waterloo campus, for the duration of the residency.
The full-time position (40 hours/week) requires 40% of the author’s time to be spent on community programs or projects, leaving 60% of the work-week available for the writer’s own creative projects. Community programs and projects include reading manuscripts and consulting with students and the public, visiting classrooms, giving readings and lectures, leading workshops, or participating in similar community programming, on Laurier’s three campuses.
