About Applications for the Al Purdy A-Frame Residency

Applications for the Al Purdy Artist in Residency program are now available!
The artist in residence will be expected to participate in one public event for each four weeks of their stay, or complete a community-based project as noted above – the event could be a reading, lecture, workshop, an event in a local school or some other literary activity – and to consider other reasonable requests. Those awarded a residency will be asked to donate at least one copy of one of their books to the Residency Library at the A-frame. Writers in residence will also be encouraged to make themselves known at the Purdy Library in Ameliasburgh and to donate a book. They may also wish to discuss with the local liaison the possibility of working with local schools. Those awarded the residency will be given a stipend of $750 dollars ($600 honorarium and $150 travel) a week[2] while living in the A-frame, and will be free to spend their time on their writing.
