WriteON 2021: Call for writers

Registration date:


Submission date:




The annual WriteON workshop series creates an opportunity for artists, architects and those interested in the design of cities to engage in critical discourse. Take the time to articulate the meaningful across our urban environment. Applications are adjudicated on merit and are accepted until April 1st, 2021. The WriteON 2021 critical writing workshop series calls attention to the ethics and meaning of design. As we navigate isolating lockdowns, masking, and even mourning, what does it mean to care for others? What well-intended designs create protection for some but a lack of safety for others? What stories of occupation and conflict can be amended with new ways forward? Successful applicants will attend four online writing sessions between April and June. Select essays developed over the course of the workshops will be published. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for one of two summer residencies to research and develop a critical reflection. The residencies are in partnership with the Calgary Public Library and Esker Foundation.
Submit a writing sample and CV or background detail by April 4, 2021. There is no fee to apply nor to participate. Find details and apply at: http://www.dtalks.org/wo21-ame... Write ON is produced by d.talks, a Calgary (Canada)-based non-profit focused on deepening the connections between people and place. Find more detail at: dtalks.org.
