“Sage Hill provides a supportive and safe space for writers of all backgrounds and experience to create.”
– Andrea Martineau, 2020 Emerging Writers’ Course Alum

“Sage Hill is an inspiring place to be, whether in person or online. It’s changed me as a writer, and as a person, and for that I’m so very grateful.”
– Kim Fahner, 2020 Fiction Course Alum

Course Elements:

Live group sessions discussing the craft of writing.

1-on-1 mentoring with instructors providing individual critiques.

Personal writing time and feedback on work as it develops.

Faculty and participant readings.

You’re an ideal applicant if you:

  • are looking for a published author to mentor you in your writing.
  • want to move your manuscript towards a publishable state.
  • are working on a writing project that needs an influx of time & energy.
  • would like to build your community & meet writers across Canada.
  • desire to refine your writing skills & have fun in the process!

Sage Hill Writing intentionally keeps class sizes small for optimum instructor / participant ratio.


  • With small class sizes, there is flexibility to coordinate a schedule that works for the time zones of writers in each course. Classes may meet for an hour or two each day or a few hours every second day to allow for writing time in between. Sessions will likely take place in the late morning / early afternoon time range.
  • Each writer will also have 1-on-1 sessions with their instructor throughout the program.
  • Faculty and participant readings as well as other social activities for all classes will take place at 5 pm CST to account for all time zones.
  • Other optional activities including free online Pilates classes will be scheduled around class times.
  • For more information about scheduling, email or call 306-537-7243.

“Sage Hill Experience was as valuable online as in-person – very different of course from all the times I’ve attended in person, but weighing the comparison of pros and cons, it’s still an excellent program.”
– Belinda Betker, 2020 Poetry Course Alum

“I went from 100 pages of “I am not sure”, to a clear path of what I need to do. I can work independently for months now.”
– Caitlin McCullam-Arnal, 2020 Fiction Course Alum
