How do I submit my writing to the “Writer in Residence”?

The Writer in Residence program is designed to provide individual feedback on manuscript submissions. Please review the following guidelines before submitting your manuscript.

We accept manuscripts in paper form only. Submissions can be up to ten pages in length. They should be typed, single-sided and double-spaced in 12 point type or larger.

Manuscripts are only accepted during an active Writer in Residence term. Manuscripts should be dropped off in person or mailed to Memorial Park Library September 1 to November 15.

Memorial Park Library

Calgary, AB T2R 0W5

Please include your full name, telephone number, email address and library card number.

The Library will take every precaution with the manuscripts but cannot be responsible for accidental loss or damage.
