The Banff Centre is offering a program involving off-site manuscript development (April 21 to June 20, 2008) and an on-site residency (July 7 to August 2, 2008).
This program offers eight established non-fiction writers an opportunity to develop a major essay, memoir, or feature article. Writers are encouraged to explore new ideas in journalism, or to work on a culturally relevant piece that might otherwise be difficult to complete.
In addition to a $3,000 commission, successful applicants may also receive financial assistance to cover the program fee, accommodation, meals, and travel costs.
The deadline for application is Friday March 14, 2008.
