About SFU Library's Non-Fiction Writer in Residence program
The SFU Library Non-Fiction Writer in Residence program emphasizes the power of non-fiction writing to share knowledge beyond academia, enhancing the SFU community's capacity to tell compelling research and scholarship stories. This complements the Library's growing activities in the area of knowledge mobilization.
The Non-Fiction Writer in Residence will:
- Deliver workshops on non-fiction writing for public audiences
- Showcase non-fiction writing that brings scholarship to a public audience through public events
- Offer opportunities for SFU graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and staff to receive feedback and support on their own public writing projects

Manuscript Coffee Chats with Chelene Knight
Chelene Knight is offering 30-minute coffee chats to discuss your writerly goals and to answer a few of your questions related to your nonfiction project (creative nonfiction, memoir, narrative nonfiction, or personal essays). Upon confirmation of your booking, you’ll receive an automated email explaining how to format and send in your writing sample.
Sharing early drafts of a project can be anxiety-inducing, but Chelene promises to make the call helpful and fun so that you can walk away feeling inspired with a clear set of next best steps, so bring your questions, a coffee, and be welcomed into a safe and supportive space for writerly discussion.
