WAM Sept. 10-11 Writer In Residence
Memorial University invites writers to its campus for the fall and winter semesters to act as authors in residence. This placement is for both new and established artists whose work shows a high level of accomplishment. While here, the writers are encouraged to work on their own projects, offer assistance and advice to students and to the larger local community as well. This semester’s author in residence is award-winning poet and novelist Anne Simpson. I asked her what it means to her to be writer in residence at Memorial University.
