The SWG is pleased to announce Jill Robinson as our Fall 2022 Virtual Writer-in-Residence for September 1 to November 30, 2022.


Jill Robinson lives on the west coast now, but part of her will remain forever in Saskatchewan, where she lived from 1993 – 2009, and again in 2020-2021. She’s worked with rural writers in a number of SWG and SAB programs, including “Write In Your Community,” and is keen to work again with writers who may be feeling alone out there.

She says, “I know the feeling! I look forward to discussing writing in any genre, at every level. I myself write primarily fiction and creative nonfiction, but I’ve studied and published in most genres. See you soon!”


To learn more about Jill and her writing, please watch her introductory video.


The Virtual Writer-in-Residence (VWiR) program provides opportunities for SWG members writing at all levels of development and in all genres to receive guidance and advice on a specific writing project from an established writer. Eligible members must live in Saskatchewan outside of Regina and Saskatoon – members in those cities can access their Public Library’s Writer-in-Residence programs. Members can submit up to 15 pages to the VWIR and meet one-on-one through Zoom to talk about the individual’s writing. 


This service will open on September 1, 2022. To register, please fill out the form here.
