As you know, several years ago I spent a month at the Banff Centre for the Arts. I took part in its Literary Journalism program, and the experience continues to resonate with me today. It’s where I conceived of my recent essay, Pregnant Pause.
I’m a huge supporter of the Centre and encourage artists and writers to consider taking part in their programming in any capacity. Below is a link to the Centre’s self-directed residency for any of you who need a place to begin, make headway on, or finish that piece of writing that needs a final push to make its way off your desk.
The deadline’s coming up fast:
Self-directed Writing Residency (Winter)
Program dates: Minimum of three days between January 4 and March 31, 2011
