Poetry Workshop with Tolu Oloruntoba: How to Observe

October 22, 2022, 10:45 AM12:15 PM CST

$35 – $40

This 1.5 hour workshop with 2022 Griffin Poetry Prize winner Tolu Oloruntoba will repurpose the visual art form of still life, making it a vehicle for poetic observation. This workshop is a part of the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild Annual Conference.

The SWG Annual Conference and AGM will be held October 21-22, 2022 in Regina SK at the Atlas Hotel (4177 Albert St).

The hotel and conference rooms are wheelchair accessible.

The theme of our conference is An Alphabet of Writers, which is a playful theme of community in response to the question of “what is a group of writers called?”

All conference details are available on this website. Here you can browse through our incredible offerings, register and pay for your spot at the conference, and support the Guild by bidding on our online silent auction (watch this space for more details in October!).

We will be selling books by presenters and members at the Atlas Hotel during the conference. Read our FAQs here for more information and when to drop off books.

All conference events require registration, which will open September 1, 2022. Our pass options include:

  • Full Conference pass (includes access to recorded events for 30 days)
    •  Member $200 / Non-member $245 / Student $100
  • Online pass for limited livestreamed events (available after the conference for 30 days)
    • Member $55 / Non-member $75 / Student $25
  • Individual events
    •  Price depends on type of event and membership, see registration for details

SK Arts Literary Consultant Joanne Gerber will be available during the SWG Conference to meet at the Atlas Hotel with writers interested in discussing SK Arts grant applications. Please indicate your interest on your registration form and Joanne will arrange a convenient time for you to meet with her. More information about SK Arts grants can be found here.

We hope you enjoy our conference this year!
