Programming Update due to COVID-19
In light of the current exceptional circumstances, the Sage Hill Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone the Fiction Colloquium from May until the fall. The regular summer programs are currently being considered and more information will be available in the next few weeks.
Sage Hill is committed to continuing to provide creative writing instruction and programming.
Keep safe & well during these changing times.

The Fiction Colloquium is a facilitated retreat for writers 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 course offers a small group context and is limited to 8 participants. Focus will be on individual manuscript consultations and on group discussions dealing with technical, philosophical or conceptual issues in contemporary fiction. Instruction occurs within a deep-immersion setting over a relaxed 10 days with emphasis on individual writing and manuscript revision. Application is open to writers 19 years of age and older from Canada and abroad.
The 2020 Fiction Colloquium will be held in Muenster, SK, at St. Peter’s College.
