Attention female Canadian writers: there's an exciting opportunity from our friends at Canadian Women in the Literary Arts (CWILA) to be a critic-in-residence. Here's their call for applications:
If you're a female Canadian writer (poet, novelist, storyteller, scholar) who'd like to raise awareness of women’s literary and critical presence in Canadian letters, we hope you'll submit your critic-in-residence application to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1, 2012.
The resident critic will work on critical essays and/or book reviews and submit them to one or more Canadian review venues (print or web). CWILA also archives the work, which will be available at cwila.com following publication elsewhere, copyright permitting. If there's time, the resident critic is encouraged to support a climate of critical responsiveness in Canadian letters with a collaborative or community-based project. The residency is virtual, so the writer is free to work from home. Please visit cwila.com for full details.
To apply, please send a letter of intent to describe your project, the venue (or venues) you plan to submit to, a one-page CV and a short sample of critical work to email@example.com by November 1. A $3,000 stipend will be awarded in December.
We encourage applications from genderqueer writers, indigenous writers, as well as other women and/or genderqueer writers of colour.
