Banff Centre Emerging Writers Intensive program application deadline
July 31, 2019
This workshop-based program embraces multiple genres, providing structured support for new creative writers wanting to improve their writing skills. Four faculty work closely with eight participants in one of these genres: first chapter novel, creative nonfiction, poetry, and short fiction. Participants read the submissions of fellow group members, then give and receive feedback during three-hour morning workshops. Afternoons are devoted to writing time, and to meeting one-on-one with faculty. An energizing, transformative experience, designed to help participants take their writing to a new level, this program is a perfect entry point into Banff Centre’s full suite of literary arts programs.
