» Fall Conference/AGM

The Fall Conference/AGM is a two day event that occurs on the Friday and Saturday annually on the third week in October. The location of the conference usually alternates between Regina and Saskatoon. In even numbered years, the Fall Conference takes place in Saskatoon and in odd years it takes place in Regina.

Each fall, the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild hosts its Fall Conference and Annual General Meeting (AGM), The John V. Hicks Awards Dinner, along with the Caroline Heath Memorial Lecture.


The 2018 SWG Fall Conference will take place October 20-21, 2018 in Saskatoon at the Park Town Hotel.
