Hi, there!

I'm Richard Scarsbrook, the Toronto Public Library's Fall 2014 Writer in Residence.

I will be working from the beautiful North York Central Library, meeting with a large number of deveoping writers to provide them with individual advice on their fiction and poetry manuscripts, as well as presenting workshops that I hope will benefit writers of all kinds.

You can find out everything you need to know about my residency at the library's official website, and you can learn about me, my books, and my literary adventures at my official website and author blog.

I enjoyed meeting many of you at the introductory event for my residency, and I am looking forward to working with many more readers and writers in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned!  I will be posting writing tips and more in the next few days!


During his residency, Richard will work on three new books: a novel called Meet Me at La Bodeguita del Medio, a short story collection titled Rockets Versus Gravity, and a poetry collection called (d)Evolution. Through workshops and one-on-one meetings, Richard will draw on his years of writing and teaching experience to help developing writers find their voices and perfect their works.
