The University of Manitoba in Canada is calling for applications for a writer or storyteller-in-residence for its Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture. They are encouraging people of all nationalities to apply, although they do say that Canadian candidates will be given preference.

The three-month residency, from September 6 to December 6, 2016, 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 storyteller’s own artistic projects. The successful candidate will receive a salary of $15,000.00 CAD (less taxes), plus rent-free accommodation and return transportation to Winnipeg.

Deadline: 13 November 2015
