Usually, these programs are 1 week in duration but longer ones may be considered, especially if in the Calgary area. Presentations and workshops can include any combination of programs for elementary or junior/senior high, but small groups of 8 to 12 are best for workshops. Individualized meetings are often part of the program. Faye is also happy to work with your students in developing their “books” to be printed or photocopied. Another option includes assisting your students in writing and choosing images for PowerPoint or other presentations. Teacher in-service sessions on a variety of writing-related topics may also prove useful. Such programs should be planned well in advance, and schools may be eligible for financial help from the Artists and Education Program grants offered by Alberta Foundation for the Arts.


Writer-in-Residence for Libraries and Communities
Faye enjoys working with writers of all ages, levels and backgrounds in both large and small communities. Residencies can be offered in libraries, community centres or senior centres. WIR programs for adults range from one month to a year. Generally when these are partially funded through government programs, the writer spends half her time involved with community programming and half time working on her own projects. Sponsoring communities may wish to plan a combination of readings and programs, as well as the manuscript feedback/critiques and meetings with those individual who have submitted work. Travel (gas) and accommodation are the responsibility of the host community, but for those near Calgary, Faye will drive to the location for meetings and sessions during the day and spend her critiquing and writing time at home. Advanced planning is necessary for WIR especially if the community is seeking funding help (eg. Alberta Foundation for the Arts).
