Call for Workshop Instructors
Weaving Words — Instructors Wanted
The SWG is seeking two instructors (or one instructor who is interested in leading TWO workshops) for Weaving Words. Weaving Words is a SWG program for new Canadians, offered in partnership with the Global Gathering Place (GGP). There will be a maximum of 20 participants per session. Although dates have not been finalized, the summer session is currently projected to take place this August in Saskatoon, and winter dates will be late January, early February. Each session takes place over two weekends with a total of 10 hours of teaching.
Ideal applicants are established professional writers with experience leading creative writing workshops. Please submit a letter stating experience in workshop instruction and overall intentions for the workshops and a comprehensive curriculum vitae (CV).
Weaving Words gives people from other cultures the chance to work with professional Canadian writers in a relaxed setting, to get some tips and hands-on experience telling their own stories, and to meet others who are interested in learning the craft of creative writing. This year’s focus is on the creation of memoirs in either prose or poetry.
Deadline for applications: May 29, 2015.
