Readers and writers alike can look forward to spending the next year learning from Marty Chan and Wayne Arthurson, who have been named the 2016 Metro Federation Writers in Residence.
As the regional Writer in Residence, Marty Chan will split his time between Strathcona County (January – April), Fort Saskatchewan (May – June) and St. Albert (August – December). He is well known to Edmonton area audiences as a playwright, radio writer, television story editor and young adult author. His signature play, Mom, Dad, I’m Living with a White Girl, won an Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Award for Best New Work and the Adams Chinese Theatre Award at Harvard University.
Wayne Arthurson will call the Edmonton Public Library home for the whole of 2016. He is an indigenous writer and musician and the author of nine books, including the bestselling Fall From Grace and A Killing Winter.
Local scribes can take advantage of numerous programs and workshops with both writers, and will also have the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with them. Those who want to book some time with either Writer in Residence can visit www.metrowir.com after January 4, 2016 to contact them.
