Markin-Flanagan Distinguished Writers Program
The Markin-Flanagan Distinguished Writers Program, at the University of Calgary, strives to advance the careers of Canadian writers, invigorate the Calgary writing community, and enhance the activities of the Faculty of Humanities and the of English. The Program achieves its objectives through two annual residency programs: one for an emerging Canadian writer, and one for distinguished writers of international stature.
While in Calgary, these writers divide their time between writing and community activities. Community activities include individual manuscript consultations and providing advice to writing local writers, conducting writing workshops, giving public readings, and meeting with school groups.
