Welcome to Our New Program Manager!
We welcome Caitilin Terfloth into the role of Program Manager.
Caitilin is a professional administrator and former Editor-in-Chief of the Undergraduate Research Journal at the University of Saskatchewan. The completion of her Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in English literature culminated in an internship placement at Sage Hill Writing.
In May, we bid a fond farewell to Program Manager James Pepler. Caitilin jumped into the role of Interim Program Manager and, after a successful summer program, was thrilled to be hired on permanently as our Program Manager. She brings many years of accounting and administrative experience to Sage Hill, as well as deep-seated dedication to arts, culture, & education. She can’t imagine life without books,
and asks (respectfully) that you keep them coming!
Caitilin now runs Sage Hill Writing’s satellite office out of Saskatoon, SK.
