The Writer-in-Residence Program

Kalamalka Press and Okanagan College have been pleased to partner with the Caetani Cultural Centre to offer a Writer-in-Residence program. This collaboration is intended to serve as a conduit between regional and national literary cultures by welcoming authors of any genre from across Canada to the North Okanagan to live and write and commune. The KP@C3 includes four weeks of accommodation and studio space at the Caetani Cultural Centre, with the possibility of extended stay, as well as an honorarium. Writers are responsible for their own transportation, food, and supplies.

On Hiatus

Given the current COVID-19 circumstances, the WIR program is on hiatus. Please check back when things settle back to normal for further details.
