Run Time: July 13 – 17, 2020. 10:00am – 4:00pm.
The 2020 Teen and Young Writers’ Workshops are now complete.
Thanks to participants who joined Sage Hill’s very first virtual workshops!

Instructor: Evonne Garnett
Evonne Garnett lives in Prince Albert, teaches Creative Writing at one of the high schools there, and, when it’s offered, at the Polytechnic Institute as well. She has participated in Sage Hill’s Summer Writing Program and is still in awe of that experience. She was over the moon in 2013 when she was long-listed for CBC Writes. She is published in small ways here and there, is working on a chapter for a feminist textbook to be published in the next year, and is involved in the local writing community. She is charmed by cats, gardens, books of all kinds, traveling experiences, dark chocolate, and warm conversation, always.
Guest Author: Mika Lafond
Mika Lafond lives in Treaty 6 Territory with her two children. She is from the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation. Mika’s first book of poetry, nipe wanin, was published in 2017. She has also had short stories and essays published. She recently wrote a play for the Indigenous Ensemble youth group in Saskatoon. She currently teaches at ITEP at the University of Saskatchewan.
Sage Hill’s Prince Albert Teen Writing Workshop is made possible
by generous donors, funders, and community partners.
