2015 Spring Tides Reading Series Call for Expressions of Interest

Spring Tides is an annual reading series held between March and June that showcases new and established writers. The series presents four to five readings – usually two in St. John’s and two to three elsewhere in the province – each featuring two writers. Each featured writer reads for approximately 20 minutes and participates in a brief Q & A following the reading. WANL provides an honorarium of $125 to each reader.

WANL seeks expressions of interest (EOI) from writers who would like to participate in this series during 2015. Preference will be given to writers who have a recently published book. (Please note: Submitting an expression of interest does not guarantee you a reading spot in this series.)


1) Participation in this series is open only to WANL members in good standing. If you are not a current WANL member or your membership has lapsed, you may join or renew at the time you submit an EOI.
2) Writers who read in this series in 2014 are not eligible.

Submissions Guidelines
Expressions of interest must include:

1) Mailing address, telephone and email;
2) An up-to-date list of publications and readings;
3) The month(s) between March and June 2015 that you are available to read.

Submissions that do not contain ALL of the requested information will be deemed ineligible.


EOIs should be submitted to the attention of the Readings Committee at:

Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador
223 Duckworth Street, Suite 208
St. John’s, NL, A1C 6N1
E-mail: wanl@nf.aibn.com


Readers will be chosen and confirmed in late February 2015.
