Winnipeg, MB – The Winnipeg Public Library is pleased to announce that Anna Leventhal is its new Writer-in-Residence for 2021-2022, and will be available for consultations beginning October 1, 2021.

Leventhal is an author and editor whose short stories and non-fiction articles have been featured in publications such as Geist, Maisonneuve, and the Toronto Star.

Leventhal has led creative writing workshops for a wide variety of audiences including high schools, colleges and adult writers of many levels of experience, and has worked one-on-one with emerging writers through the Québec Writers’ Federation’s mentorship program.

“As a writer I’m always taking in new ideas and methods and forms of inspiration, and I aim to enter into a mentor-mentee relationship with that spirit of open exchange,” said Leventhal.

The Writer-in-Residence provides free consultation by email, phone, and online with emerging and established Manitoba writers of all genres. Manuscripts for review can be submitted by email or by mail. Visit Winnipeg Public Library – Writer-in-Residence for complete submission guidelines.

Leventhal’s term as Writer-in-Residence at the Winnipeg Public Library runs until April 30, 2022.
