A CV is a method of introduction. A literary CV shines a light on your literary activities. Whether applying for funding or submitting a manuscript for consideration, it’s a simple way to highlight your accomplishments.

During the workshop, participants will create a literary CV. We will discuss the sections of a literary CV and ways to present—and highlight—our accomplishments. Participants will write an artistic statement, organize their list of publications, and fill in the framework of a CV. Participants should expect to spend a few hours outside of class time to compile and type their accomplishments into a Word document.

Registration deadline: January 7th, 2021.

A mentorship with George Elliott Clarke set the groundwork for her work-in-progress and was supported by a Professional Development for Artists Grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
