English department seeking applications for writer-in-residence

Applications from Canadian writers interested in serving as the University of Windsor’s 2012-13 writer-in-residence are due by January 27.

The nine-month residency runs from September 1 to May 31. It is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts; the UWindsor Department of English Language, Literature, and Creative Writing; and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

The program provides time to write, while involving the writer with students and other members of the campus and local communities. This year the department is seeking an author who specializes in fiction or creative non-fiction, but who may also write in other genres.
