Haig-Brown Writer-in-residence gets right down to work in the New Year

The Haig-Brown Writer-in-Residence Wayne Grady will be hosting a series of talks and workshop in the New Year, beginning with “Meet the Writer-In-Residence” on Jan. 9.

At this session, Grady will introduce himself and his work, and read short passages from each of his three main areas of literary activity: fiction (Emancipation Day), nonfiction (Breakfast at the Exit Café), and translation (The Angel’s Jig, a novel by Daniel Poliquin).

He will also speak in general about the writer-in-residence program. The session runs from 1-2:30 p.m. and costs $7.

Grady will also be presenting three Master Classes for writers, each consisting of a lecture, followed by in-session exercises and workshops, lasting approximately three hours.

The sessions will be of equal value to writers of fiction, nonfiction and poetry.

On Saturday Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. will be the workshop entitled Writing Character, followed by Writing Place on Feb. 13, and Issues in Translation on Feb. 27.

The cost of each session is $40 and you can register by calling the Museum at 250-287-3103.

For more information on any of these sessions go to www.crmuseum.ca.

The Haig-Brown Writer-In-Residence program is a unique program where each year a published author is selected to come stay in the historic Haig-Brown House during the winter months.

During their stay they do public programming, providing literary advice and support to the local community, and have the opportunity to work on their own writing projects.

For more information about the Haig-Brown Writer-In-Residence program contact Ken Blackburn at the Museum at Campbell River (public.programs@crmuseum.ca).
