Rob to be Writer in Residence in Kitchener this fall
I'm delighted to announce that I will be the Edna Staebler Writer in Residence at the Kitchener (Ontario) Public Library this fall.
I will be doing free appraisals/critiques of manuscripts of all types, and having private one-on-one hour long consultations with the authors of the works submitted. I'll also be leading a couple of workshops and giving a reading.
I'm only doing a limited number of appraisals during my residency, and it's first come, first served. Manuscripts will be accepted starting Monday, August 14, 2006, at the Main Library's Marketing & Communications department on the Lower Level.
All the details are here.
(Kitchener is a city in southern Ontario, adjacent to Waterloo, and about an hour and a half from downtown Toronto.)
This is my third writer-in-residence stint at a library. I was writer in residence at the Richmond Hill (Ontario) Public Library in 2000, and at the Toronto Public Library's Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy, in 2003.
