    "In an odd way I envy all future people who have this opportunity."

    - Fred Stenson, CPL's first Writer in Residence, 1987

    A pretty sweet place to come to work, no?

    And that opportunity is upon us future people once again, 26 years later, as our search for the 2014 Writer in Residence is now underway. This program is run out of the beautiful Memorial Park library and I can assure the 1987 version of Mr. Fred Stenson — the envy is all ours.

    Click here for full application details.

    The deadline to apply is June 30, 2013.


    Some of our past Writers in Residence, the envy of Fred Stenson, include Betty Jane Hegerat, William Pasnak, Cora Taylor, Yvonne Trainer, Joan Crate, Ken Rivard, Shirlee Smith Matheson, Faye Reineberg Holt, Rona Altrows, Naomi K. Lewis, George Melnyk, Darlene Quaife, Martine Bates Leavitt, Brian Brennan, and Gail Bowen. Bowen, award-winning author of the Joanne Kilbourne series, blogged some of her experience. You can read Part One and Part Two of her impressions from Gail's Blog. To find the work of some our past writers-in-residence on library shelves, click the book covers below. And stay tuned for the announcement of our 2013 Writer in Residence, coming this July.
