Author in Residence

Connecting readers and writers.

The Author in Residence program has been offered at the Library for over 30 years. Through this program, we have hosted many exceptional authors who continue to contribute to Calgary's strong literary community.

During their residency, these authors champion the joy of reading and help patrons appreciate the craft of writing. They deliver programs and review manuscripts, providing advice to both beginner and established writers.

The Author in Residence is available from September to November.

Applications for the 2020 Author in Residence are now open
