Toronto Public Library has put up its web page detailing my writer in residence tenure this spring. That means I can reveal the details here too; I'll give you some here, but I'll also be placing the events into my calendar, which you can access at any time through the "Events" menu item on the left of the site's window (or the "upcoming events" box on the right).
Here's how to participate
Submit your manuscript for an opportunity to have a one-on-one evaluation with me or attend the writer-in-residencereadings and workshops.
- Manuscripts should be sent via email to Karl Schroeder, writer in residence at the Merril Collection.
- All manuscripts should include your name, address, phone number and e-mail address.
- Manuscripts should be 5,000 words in length. I will read only the first 5,000 words of longer submissions and base his comments on that word length.
- After your manuscript has been read, the Merril Collection staff will contact you and book an appointment for you to discuss your writing.
- I'lll will need 1 –2 weeks lead time in order to read submissions before an appointment is booked.
- The library reserves the right to limit the number of manuscripts accepted.
- Toronto Public Library is not responsible for returning manuscripts. Please submit a COPY of your work.
