Ray Robertson

Book sale to support writer-in-residence program

A used book sale Thursday, September 27, in the CAW Student Centre will raise funds to bring a writer-in-residence to the Department of English Language, Literature and Creative Writing.

The department has identified Chatham native Ray Robertson to take up the position, which involves one-on-one consultations with students; participation in literary festivals, workshops and readings; and an opportunity to develop works in progress. Faculty and students are working to raise $10,000 to make the residency possible; the university has pledged matching funds.
