Each year the Doris McCarthy Gallery invites U of T Scarborough's annual Writer-in-Residence to peruse the Doris McCarthy Gallery Collection and identify a work of art to inspire a piece of writing. This literary contribution adds a lasting, meaningful layer of interpretation to the work in the collection. 2019 marks the five-year anniversary of this partnership. Writers who have participated in this program include Nino Ricci, Helen Humphreys, Zoe Whittall, Aisha Sasha John, and Carrianne Leung. Presented here for the first time together are texts and artworks that inspired them.

Presented in partnership with the UTSC English Department, Writer-in-Residence Program
