    Will you be looking for a writer for next year as well? If so, what is the application process?

    I’m a poet, living in New Hampshire, and I will be looking for a position for next year, 2010-2011.

    Thanks for your help.

    I was looking to contact the Regina Public library and ended up in PEI!
    How does that work? 🙂
