Helen Weinzweig was UNB’s eighth writer-in-residence for the 1988-1989 academic year. Her appointment was funded by the university, the Canada Council, and the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Recreation, and Heritage. Weinzweig was previously the playwright in residence at the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto during 1984. During her year at UNB, Weinzweig lived in a student dormitory “to resolve an unfulfilled ambition to go to college.”
