WIR speechbubbleMetro Writers in Residence

The Writer in Residence program is a joint project, shared by four libraries in the Metro Edmonton area: St. Albert Public Library, Strathcona County Library, Fort Saskatchewan Public Library and Edmonton Public Library.


2018WIRsWe are so excited to welcome Michael Hingston (regional) and Darrin Hagen (EPL) as our writers in residence for 2018.

Michael Hingston's work has appeared in numerous newspapers and magazines, and his first book, The Dilettantes, was published in 2013. This year he has made the regional bestseller list with his new book Let's Go Exploring, an examination of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip. Hingston is also the co-founder of Hinston & Olsen Publishing, home of the Short Story Advent Calendar. 

Michael Hingston will be at the Library from August 20 to December 15, 2018, and he is available for consultations.
