Literary Journalism | July 26 | House Program

About the Program


This month-long residency encourages the exploration of new ideas in journalism and experimentation in writing. Designed to challenge and stimulate, the program aims to inspire creative pieces of writing, which might otherwise be difficult to complete. A preeminent space for long-form journalism, this residency emphasizes the strengths of thorough and articulate reporting, distinctive storytelling, and literary devices.

Work created in this program has been published in many outlets including The Globe and Mail, The Walrus, and The Atlantic, and pieces have gone on to win National Magazine and National Newspaper Awards. 



Participants in the Centre's Literary Journalism program read from their commissioned pieces that have been in development during their four week residency, hosted by Susan Orlean.


The Literary Journalism program is generously supported by: Rogers Communications Chair in Literary Journalism Endowment Fund.
