Writer in Residence Archives

Most months Open Book feature a virtual writer-in-residence, who shares original, literary-focused thoughts with our readers. From writing tips to publishing advice, craft confessions to reading habits, our writers-in-residence bring wildly creative points of view and new perspectives. They are amongst the most acclaimed authors in Canada today, including both exciting up and coming voices and established authors you know and love. Check out the archives to find your favourite, and stay tuned for our next great WIR!

The writer-in-residence position is offered by invitation to published authors based in Canada who have recently released a new book. We're not currently accepting enquiries or applications for the WIR programme.
