» Fall Conference/AGM


The Fall Conference/AGM is a two day event that occurs annually on the third weekend 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.

The John V. Hicks Awards Luncheon, along with the Caroline Heath Memorial Lecture, both take place during the Conference weekend.

The 2019 SWG Fall Conference will be Friday October 18 to Sunday October 20, to be held in Regina at the Regina Travelodge Hotel (4177 Albert Street). In honour of our 50th anniversary, the theme will be The Gilded Guild: 50 Years and Counting. The Conference will feature two full days of programming, celebratory events, the 2019 John V. Hicks Long Manuscript Award in Fiction presentation and more.

Full program details and registration are available here.


The Guild’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in conjunction with the Fall Conference. The AGM takes place on the Sunday of the Conference and is an event where only SWG members can vote.
