3rd Annual Aboriginal Writers' Facilitated Retreat
August 14—18, 2013
Spring Valley Guest Ranch, Ravenscrag, SK
The third Annual Aboriginal Writers' Facilitated Retreat will be held at Spring Valley Guest Ranch in Ravenscrag, SK August 14—18, 2013. This retreat is an opportunity for beginning and emerging Aboriginal writers who want a combination of writing time, instruction and feedback.
At the SWG Facilitated Retreat, in addition to undisturbed writing time, the Writer-In-Residence, Dr. Jesse Archibald-Barber will give an introductory talk on an aspect of writing, provide one hour of one-on-one discussion for feedback on the participants’ writing and/or answers to writing-related questions, and join in with informal discussion at mealtimes with the participants. The Facilitated Retreat is designed as a time for writers to focus on the writing they would like to do and to gain encouragement and motivation by interacting with the Writer-In-Residence and their fellow participants.
Fortunately, we have received sponsorship from ISC, SGI, SaskTel and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner so there is no fee and attendance at the retreat includes a private room and all meals, as well as access to the Writer-In-Residence as described above. The maximum number of participants will be 6 writers.
