RPL’s 28th Writer in Residence: Trevor Herriot
Trevor Herriot is a prairie naturalist, activist and writer from Regina, SK. He has taught creative writing at St. Peter’s College, led workshops for emerging writers at the Banff Centre, and is currently serving as a mentor under the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild Mentorship program. He is a Saskatchewan Book Award winner and Governor General’s Award for Non-Fiction nominee who has authored four books, as well as stories, essays and radio documentaries.
During his residency from September 2016 to May 2017, Trevor will devote a large portion of his time to working on personal writing projects.
He will also spend time working with Regina Public Library to deliver individual consultations, community/school visits, and group workshops and seminars to writers in the community.
Trevor will be the 28th Writer in Residence since RPL became the first public library in Canada to offer the program in 1978. His new book, Towards a Prairie Atonement, will be released on October 22, 2016.
