McGill Writer in Residence sign now

We, the students and faculty of McGill University, draw the attention of the Faculty of Arts to the following:





THAT McGill University does not have a writer-in-residence program,





THAT despite offering little in the way of academic support for creative writing, McGill continues to attract first class talent in the field,





THAT several rival institutions in Canada, including the University of Western Ontario, the University of Toronto and the University of Calgary, sponsor at least one writer-in-residence,





THAT a comparable program would encourage McGill students interested in creative writing and provide patronage and publishing opportunities to the culturally rich writing community of Montreal, thereby pursing McGill's mission in the "advancement of learning" and in "providing service to society."





THEREFORE your petitioners call upon the Faculty of Arts to institute a writer-in-residence program at McGill University.
