Call for writers
Participate in WriteON 2021
Ways of knowing start from vantage points. With shifts come the opportunity to witness and to repair. How can we amend, to begin to see, feel and listen to what has been previously overlooked, or maybe even forgotten?
The WriteON 2021 critical writing workshop series calls attention to the ethics and meaning of design. It is open to creative practitioners with desire to take the time to articulate the meaningful across our urban environment. As we navigate isolating lockdowns, masking, and even mourning, what does it mean to care for others? What well-intended designs create protection for some but a lack of safety for others? What stories of occupation and conflict can be amended with new ways forward?
Successful applicants will attend four online writing sessions between April and June. Select essays developed over the course of the workshops will be published. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for a summer residency to research and develop a critical reflection. Two residencies are offered, in partnership with the Calgary Public Library and Esker Foundation.
To apply, submit a writing sample and CV or background detail. There is no fee to apply nor to participate. Applications are adjudicated on merit and are accepted until April 4th, 2021.
