There are many authors in Saskatchewan who live outside the major centres of Regina and Saskatoon. The Guild works to meet their needs in a variety of ways.
The Guild works in partnership with various communities to sponsor author readings in schools and libraries (see School, Library & Community Readings) and other organizations that would like to host readings for adults.
For the past several years the Guild has offered a combination of a reading (offered one day/evening) and a workshop (offered the following day). This program has taken place in various communities across Saskatchewan: Beechy, Bengough, Davidson, Estevan, Hudson Bay, Kindersley, La Ronge, Lloydminster, Maidstone, Manor, Meadow Lake, Muscowpetung First Nation, Nipawin, Nokomis, North Battleford, Shaunavon, Tisdale, Unity, Weyburn, and Yorkton.
Thanks to grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and SaskLotteries, these events are completely free to participants.
If your community is interested in taking part in this program, please get in touch with the Program Manager (791-7743 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
