Writers-in-Residence at UTSC

UTSC's Writer-in-Residence program brings students into dialogue with select accomplished writers. Since the program's inauguration in 2013, the Department has hosted acclaimed writers such as Miriam ToewsNino RicciHelen Humphreys, Zoe Whittall, and Aisha Sasha John. In addition to holding regular office hours, running in-class workshops and hosting the weekly creative writing group, each writer gives a reading/performance at the UTSC library and delivers a keynote lecture on “The Creative Life."
