The Toronto Public Library invites applications from Canadian screenwriters for a Screenwriter-in-Residence position. The residency is designed to encourage exchanges between the screenwriter and the community and requires 14 hours per week at the library for programming (scope to be determined), evaluation of submitted manuscripts, and one-on-one meetings with writers from the general public. The remaining time is available for the Screenwriter in Residence to work on his or her own project(s). The tenure of the position would be from April 21 to June 14, 2008, and the screenwriter would be located at the North York Central Library. Compensation for the two-month term is $8,000. Applications are due by January 25, 2008. Please see www.wgc.ca for information on how to apply and eligibility criteria.
That's about $70 an hour. Not bad for mentoring, huh? I bet you get an office, too.
