Writer-in-Residence Program

Library Partners Press is pleased to announce a call for nominations to the inaugural Writer-in-Residence Program.

As part of the Library Partners Press vision to serve as an incubator for writers and content creators (of all stripes), the goal of the LPP Writer-in-Residence program is to support the creative process of Library Partners Press Award winners during a six- or twelve-month time period, so they may complete and in fact publish a manuscript within the Residency timeline. The Resident’s completed manuscript and published book will be celebrated in grand style.

  • Appearing (if even just virtually) at related LPP events;
  • Working with LPP staff to develop relevant programming;
  • Working with social media to create online content (blogs, posts, tweets, etc.);
  • Agree to LPP Writer-in-Residence Terms for to-be-published manuscript;
  • Commit to 6 (mostly) continuous months of “virtual residency.”

Again, Writer-in-Residence applications/nominations are reviewed in a judging process by the LPP Editorial Board, a collection of writing professionals. The LPP Writer-in-Residence will be announced no later than June of each residency year.
