Writer in Residence Trevor Cole
Trevor Cole, 2018 Writer in Residence, will review manuscripts and give workshops. 

Trevor Cole has won international acclaim for his fiction and journalism. His first two novels — Norman Bray in the Performance of His Life (2004), and The Fearsome Particles (2006) — were both short-listed for the Governor-General’s Award and long-listed for the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. His third novel, Practical Jean, published in Canada, the US, Germany, and France, won the 2011 Leacock Medal for Humour and was short-listed for the Writer’s Trust Fiction Prize. In 2013 Cole won the Canada Council’s Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for outstanding artistic achievement as a writer in mid-career. His fourth novel, Hope Makes Love, has been called “rewarding,” “riveting,” “powerful” and “brilliant.” In 2015 he adapted his first novel for the stage, and in 2017, HarperCollins published his fifth book, The Whisky King, which The Globe and Mail called “a superb work of historical non-fiction.” It is shortlisted for the 2017 Speaker’s Book Award.

During his residency, Trevor Cole will review manuscripts and give individual consultations.
