Mercedes Eng Named 2022 Ellen and Warren Tallman Writer-in-Residence!

Congratulations to Mercedes Eng for her recent appointment as Simon Fraser University’s 2022 Ellen and Warren Tallman Writer-in-Residence! Eng will be working on an anthology during her residency and will be available to consult with writers from September 13 to December 3.

The anthology Eng is assembling during her residency seeks to dismantle prison systems. From Rebecca Saloustros’ piece on the SFU website: “‘During her writer-in-residence term, Eng will be working on a prison anthology of writing by women and girls, femmes, non-binary, and two-spirit people about carceral systems.” Read Saloustros’ full piece on Eng’s residency here.

We look forward to following Eng’s time as the 2022 Ellen and Warren Tallman Writer-in-Residence and are eager to hear about both the work she’s creating and the writers she will help flourish.
