There’s Still Time to Apply to the
Spring Poetry Colloquium
Facilitated by Tim Lilburn

Retreat Dates: May 15 – 28, 2017

Sage Hill’s Spring Poetry Colloquium, an intensive, two-week workshop, will be led by Governor General’s Award-winning Canadian poet and essayist, Tim Lilburn.

Join us at the sunny Living Skies Retreat Centre (formerly St. Michael’s Retreat) in Lumsden, SK.  Your tuition includes meals, accommodations and, of course, excellent instruction.

Amid stunning vistas of the Qu’Appelle Valley, writers will receive individual manuscript consultations, as well as seminar discussions investigating technical, philosophical, or conceptual issues in contemporary poetry.

Scholarships and bursaries are available to applicants.

Apply here!

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.
