Call for Proposals
 
The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild is seeking proposals for professional development workshops to be offered online in 2019-2020. We are looking for workshop ideas and facilitators who are willing and comfortable to use an online platform (like AnyMeeting) to offer workshops on the craft or business of writing. We will consider workshops offered exclusively online or as a mix of in-person and online instruction.
 
SWG workshops range from 3 hours for a half day to 6 hours for a full day, or can be a series of workshops (half or full days). 

We invite proposals for online presentations that include:

  • craft of writing fiction, poetry, non-fiction 
  • craft of writing genre
  • business of writing and publishing, including marketing and promotion
The SWG’s Professional Development workshop series focuses on the craft and business of writing. Its goal is to offer skill development for beginning or emerging writers by established writers from a diversity of genres and backgrounds. We would like to expand our online workshop offerings so that our workshops are more accessible to all writers in Saskatchewan. 
 
Preference will be given to proposals that fit the goals of the professional development workshops and are offered by writers residing in Saskatchewan. The SWG reserves the right to reject any proposal.

  • Name and contact info (email, address, phone)
  • Description and outline of workshop (maximum 750 words) 
  • The anticipated length of the workshop
