Calgary Distinguished Writers Program

The Calgary Distinguished Writers Program (CDWP) brings the Canadian Writer-in-Residence and a number of Distinguished Visiting Writers to Calgary for free public events every year. We advance the careers of Canadian writers, invigorate the Calgary literary community, and enhance the activities of the Faculty of Arts and Department of English.
