Andy Jones -- Fall 2009
Professional writer and actor Andy Jones will be Memorial's Writer in Residence from September to December, 2009.
Jones has been a professional writer and actor for over 30 years. A founding member of CODCO and co-founder of the Resource Centre for the Arts at the LSPU Hall, he has written five critically acclaimed one-man comedy shows.
He will be available for one-on-one manuscript consultations for members of the Memorial community, as well as members of the public, and is interested in looking at all genres of writing but is particularly interested in plays and scripts. This service is provided free, and is available to everyone, not just those with ties to the university. To make an appointment for a consultation, please contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on his office phone 737-6942.
Mr. Jones will give his first performance as writer-in-residence on Oct. 1 at Petro Canada Hall at 8 p.m. Admission and parking is free. On Nov. 23, he will give an afternoon workshop at the Holyrood Library, followed by an evening performance there; both events are free and open to the general public.
The Canada Council for the Arts, the Faculty of Arts and the Department of English are sponsoring Andy Jones’ four-month stint as Memorial’s writer-in-residence.
The writer-in-residence serves as a resource for the entire community, meeting with writers at any stage of development, working in any genre.
