Submit Your Writing

The Writer in Residence program is designed to provide individual feedback on manuscript submissions. Please review the following guidelines before submitting your manuscript.  

Submissions can be up to ten (10) pages in length.  They should be typed, single-sided and double-spaced in 12 point type or larger.

We accept manuscripts in paper form only.  Manuscripts should be dropped off in person or mailed to Memorial Park Library beginning September 1st.

Please include your full name, telephone number(s), your email address and library card number.

Manuscripts are only accepted during an active Writer in Residence term. Manuscripts may be submitted after September 1, 2014.

Consultation appointments will be made at a time that is convenient for both the writer and the Writer in Residence. Memorial Park Library staff will phone to set up appointments.

You will need to have a current Calgary Public Library card to participate in this program. Cards can be obtained or renewed at any branch of Calgary Public Library.
