Do you write and illustrate graphic novels? Vancouver Public Library will host a resident graphic novelist between Aug. 28 and Dec. 15, 2017 as part of its Writer in Residence program. This program promotes Canadian writing and literature to Vancouver citizens by fostering greater public appreciation for Canadian writing, providing opportunities to interact with the resident author, and providing the space, time and resources for a Canadian author to write.
The Writer in Residence will develop exciting public programs and provide advice to emerging writers through one-to-one consultations and group workshops, as well as outreach to targeted communities. This full-time position (35 hours/week) requires 40 per cent of the author’s time be spent on library programs or projects, leaving 60 per cent of the work week available for creative writing.
This would be a contract position paying $4,250/month. The Vancouver Public Library is interested in hearing from a wide variety of graphic novelists. Whether you write comics, non-fiction, young adult or children’s graphic novels – whatever genres you choose to work in – they want to hear from you.
