How to Write Winning Applications for Writer Residencies and Grants – Elizabeth Philips and Andrew Steinmetz

Everyone struggles with those intimidating application forms for grants and programs that can make all the difference in our writing projects. This session will demystify the process of applying for writer residencies and supporting your writing with Canada Arts Council grants.

ELIZABETH PHILIPS was the director of the Banff Centre’s Emerging Writer Intensive for eight years. She is the author of four poetry collections, most recently Torch River. In 2015, she published her first novel, The Afterlife of Birds (Freehand Books), winner of the City of Saskatoon Book Award and a finalist for the Amazon.ca First Novel Award. She is a former editor of Grain magazine, and is now the newly appointed Acquisition Editor for Thistledown Press. She lives in Saskatoon. 

ANDREW STEINMETZ is a program officer in the Explore and Create program at the Canada Council for the Arts. Andrew is the author of several books including Eva’s Threepeny Theatre (Gaspereau Press 2008) and most recently This Great Escape: The Case of Michael Paryla (Biblioasis 2013), a finalist of the Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction.
