Expressions of Interest: October/November Running Dog Poetry Micro-Residency

16 September, 2020

Deadline: Wednesday 30th September (11:59pm)

Applications are now open to be our October/November Poetry Micro-Resident! RD’s two-month micro-residencies are open to all poets, emerging or established. Previous experience working within the arts writing field is not required. 

Our August/September 2020 Poetry Micro-Resident is Carly Stone, and you can find all the work of our past poetry residents on our poetry page.  

Running Dog will offer five micro-residencies in 2020: February/March, April/May, June/July, August/September, and October/November. Call outs for each residency will take place in the month before they begin.

How does it work?

The micro-residency will be offered to one poet for the duration of two months. During this time, the poet in residence will produce two poems (ideally one per month, but, due to COVID-19, the poet is also able to share both works at the end of the two month period). These two poems will be distributed via Running Dog’s monthly newsletter to our readership.

All poetry micro-residents are paid for their work. 

We’re looking for writing that is contemplative, experimental, and above all NEW! The selected poet is encouraged to develop poetry during the residency so your expression of interest is all that’s needed for now. 

Running Dog particularly encourages submissions from diverse writers, including First Nation, queer and/or trans writers, people of colour and writers of all genders and abilities.
