2019 Writers in Residence

Mary Pinkoski and Matthew Stepanic are the 2019 Metro Federation Writers in Residence.

Lovers of the written and spoken word alike will be able to learn from and create alongside writer and poet Mary Pinkoski  at the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library as part of the 2019 Metro Federation Writers in Residence.

The Metro Federation is a consortium of four libraries: Edmonton Public Library, Fort Saskatchewan Public Library, St. Albert Public Library and Strathcona County Library. Each is a partner in this venture and will play host to a Writer in Residence over the year.

As the regional Writer in Residence, Mary Pinkoski will split her time between Fort Saskatchewan, St. Albert and Strathcona County, with multiple-month stints in each community.

Pinkoski, 5th Poet Laureate of the City of Edmonton (2013-2015), is an internationally-recognized poet. She has performed on stages across North America and at the 2015 Winter Lights Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland. Her work has appeared in multiple anthologies, and she is the 2011 Canadian National Spoken Word Champion and a winner of the 2008 CBC National Poetry Face-off.

Mary will be at the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library for two months starting May 6th.  Her office hours are Monday 10 am to 2:30 pm and Tuesdays 2 pm to 8 pm.  To make an appointment contact Mary at regionalwir@gmail.com or call 780-240-1194.
