Call for Workshop Instructors
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, with dates for the winter session to be determined. 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.
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.
Participants will explore ways to write their stories in English, while still keeping their distinctive voice and building on their writing, story structure and editing skills. The participants will also have the opportunity to experience a live reading as they present their work to an audience upon completion of the program. They will also create a chapbook anthology during the workshop.
Deadline for applications: June 6th, 2014.
Please indicate your interest in leading ONE or BOTH workshops.
