FICTION WORKSHOP | July 2 – 12, 2019
Instructed by Jacqueline Baker
This is a facilitated retreat for six writers who have acquired and moved beyond basic skills in short or long fiction, who have published in periodicals, and who seek further development. The Fiction Workshop focuses on works in progress and offers group discussions and critiques, 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.

She has mentored through the Banff Centre for Fine Arts and is currently Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at MacEwan University in Edmonton.
