Spring Tides Call for Expressions of Interest


Spring Tides is an annual reading series held between March and June showcasing new and established writers. The series presents four to five readings – usually two in St. John’s and others around 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 2016. 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.) Should you have a launch scheduled for the Spring of 2016, please let us know where and when.


  • Participation in this series is open to WANL members in good standing.
  • Writers who read in this series in 2015 are not eligible.

 Submissions guidelines

Expressions of interest must include:

Mailing address, telephone and email;

  • An up-to-date list of publications and invited readings;
  • The locations, and months between March 2016 and June 2016 you are available to read.

Submissions that do not contain ALL of the requested information will be deemed ineligible. Readers will be chosen and confirmed in late February 2016.

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

Submissions deadline EXTENDED: Received by 4PM February 12, 2016

Expressing interest does not guarantee that a reading will be held in your community, but will help the committee get a sense of where there might be support for an event. Interested volunteer organizers should contact
