Bulletin 10.1.2013    

Below are two opportunities which may be of interest.

First, carte blanche and the Creative Nonfiction Collective Society (CNFC) announce a creative nonfiction contest open to Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The prize is $500 and publication in carte blanche. Submit original, previously unpublished creative nonfiction of up to 3,000 words to https://carteblanche.submittable.com/submit by November 1, 2013 at midnight ET. Entry fee of $7 for CNFC members and $12 for non-members.

Second, there is a call for applications for a Writer and/or Storyteller-in-Residence in Manitoba. A professional writer and/or storyteller is sought for the position of Writer/Storyteller-in-Residence at the University of Manitoba’s Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture. The three-month residency, from September 8 to December 8, 2014, will require the successful candidate to spend approximately 16 hours per week providing mentorship and practical artistic advice to developing writers and storytellers at the University of Manitoba, to give a limited number of readings and/or performances on campus, and to lead an informal non-credit workshop. The remaining time is to be devoted to the writer or storytellers own artistic projects.

The successful candidate will receive a salary of $15,000.00 CAD, plus rent-free accommodation and return transportation to Winnipeg. Candidates of all nationalities are encouraged to apply; however, full proficiency in English is required, and publications or performance credits in English would be an asset. The Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture is committed to principles of employment equity. The application deadline is Friday, October 25, 2013.

Please see umanitoba.ca/centres/creative_culture/media/2014_Residency_Call.htm for full instructions on how to apply.
