Late Fall Writers Retreat 2019 | Literary Arts

Overview

The Late Fall Writers Retreat is a self-directed program that offers time and space for writers to retreat, reconnect, and re-energize their writing practice. In addition to a single room, which doubles as your private studio, you will be surrounded by acommunity of artistic peers. You will have the opportunity to attend inspiring talks and performances and meet with guest faculty to consult on your work.

What does the program offer?

This self-directed residency offers the opportunity to work away from the constraints of everyday life. Delve deep into your creative project and take advantage of the artistic community of your peers around you. The program provides opportunities for consultations with guest mentors, and optional group sessions led by guest mentors that allow writers to explore literary tools, aspects, and devices that you may find useful in your practice.

You may also sign up for additional walks and day trips within Banff National Park as well as campus-wide activities organized by our Participant Resources team.

This flexible program allows you to choose the amount of support you are looking for. All program elements are optional. Participants can request to extend their stay. Mentorship will not be offered during extended stays. These requests will be approved based on availability of accommodation (additional room and meal fees will apply). 

Who should apply? 

Writers in all creative genres are invited to apply. The program is designed for emerging and established writers with a proven publication record seeking a period of dedicated time to work on a project in any genre.

We welcome writers from all backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions.
