Sylvia Legris to Facilitate Spring Poetry Colloquium
May 6 – 19, 2018
Sage Hill Writing is thrilled to announce that multiple award-winning Canadian poet, Sylvia Legris, will lead the 2018 Spring Poetry Colloquium!
We’re excited that in 2018, the Poetry Colloquium will be held where it began in the early ‘90’s — at St. Peter’s College in peaceful Muenster, Saskatchewan — the perfect location to complete that poetry manuscript you’ve been working on.
Instruction occurs within an intensive, deep-immersion setting over a relaxed 14 days, with an emphasis on individual writing and manuscript revision. Writers will benefit from individual manuscript consultations, as well as seminar discussions investigating technical, philosophical, or conceptual issues in contemporary poetry.
Scholarships and bursaries are available to applicants.
Join us in spring 2018! Apply here by February 28th!
Sylvia Legris’ latest book is The Hideous Hidden (New Directions, 2016). Other collections include Pneumatic Antiphonal (2013), published as part of New Directions’ acclaimed Poetry Pamphlet Series, and Nerve Squall, winner of both the 2006 Griffin Poetry Prize and the 2006 Pat Lowther Award. Among her other awards are the 2014 Lieutenant Governor’s Saskatchewan Artist Award and, in 2012, the Canada Council’s Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for outstanding achievement by a mid-career writer. Her poetry has been a finalist three times for a National Magazine Award, and has also won the Malahat Long Poem Prize and the Bliss Carman Poetry Award. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Granta, Poetry, Kenyon Review, Harvard Review, and Prac Crit. She is currently a mentor in the University of Saskatchewan’s MFA in Creative Writing Program, and is a former Poet-in-Residence for Arc Poetry Magazine and a former editor of Grain Magazine.
