Survey for writer in residence program
|By Mark Arike - Staff Writer | June 19, 2018
Writers in Haliburton County are looking to improve their craft—and the Arts Council Haliburton Highlands plans to offer them that opportunity.
Last fall, the non-profit organization hosted the first Literary Arts Roundtable with local writers. They said they wanted to learn from a writer in residence. The Writer in Residence subcommittee recently announced it has secured funding from the Haliburton County Development Corporation to make this happen.
“We want to invite the best possible writer to serve in this important role,” said subcommittee member Ruth Walker. “A writer in residence works with other writers to be a mentor, offer feedback and deliver programs to further those writers in their personal and professional development.”
In order to meet their objectives, they have launched a survey for all writers. It must be completed by June 20. It’s a page long and asks respondents what type of material they’d like to write, and when and where they’d like the program to be. Individual feedback won’t be shared publicly and names aren’t known unless writers choose to provide it. Email addresses are collected for administrative purposes only.
