This is a facilitated retreat workshop for five participants who have acquired and moved beyond basic skills in short or long fiction, who have published at least one book of fiction or the equivalent in periodicals, and who seek further development. The Fiction Colloquium focuses on works in progress and combines group discussion, plenty of writing time, and individual critiques. Instruction occurs within a deep-immersion setting over a relaxed 10 days. Workshops in other genres occur simultaneously on-site. Application is open to writers 19 years of age and older from Canada and abroad.
