Happy to return as mentor for a new cohort of writers enrolled in this year’s SFU Southbank Writer’s Program:

The Southbank Writer’s Program is a part-time, three-month program for writers who are just starting to develop their work. Maybe you’re not showing your work to anyone, but you want to. Perhaps you belong to a creative writing group, but you’re looking for a more structured environment, or you want to develop your style. Whatever the case, if you’re ready to pursue your passion for writing, Southbank is for you.

…Focusing on fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, you’ll learn through creative writing courses, workshops, and an opportunity to read your work in public. You’ll also work closely with an experienced writing mentor, both one-on-one and in a group setting.”

Interested? Deadline for applications have been extended to May 22!
